Cocoons are secured around a custom made wire basket. This one is oversized at 30"H (only diffuser) x 23" Diameter.

 

More info : The cocoon is composed of silk that is made in glands within the body of the silkworm. In commercial silk farming, silk thread (usually totaling hundreds of meters from each cocoon) is spun off from the cocoons after they've been boiled, but they are using the totally unprocessed cocoons. The diffuser is formed of a random configuration of silk cocoons, each of which is attached to a hand soldered wire matrix. The process starts by attaching the silk cocoons to strands of wire. The first strands are then attached to a hand brushed stainless steel frame, and the layers of silk cocoon slowly built up, checking the overall form of the piece all along the way. Full Moon Pendant Light uses silk cocoons left in their natural soft white color, these will yellow a bit with time. It is a natural property of the material. Provides diffused ambient illumination.
