Fossilized Alibangbang leaf Table Lamps

Alibangbang, known as the “butterfly” leaf in the native language or Illango, is shaped like a butterfly. this leaf has both medicinal and food flavoring purposes throughout the south pacific.

Fossilization is the process of drying leaves over a three to four month period and then hand rubbing the chlorophyll of the leaf so only the leaf’s skeleton remains. this is a labor-intensive process and no corrosive chemicals are used. once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is stained in organic dyes.

Since the leaves are natural, each one will absorb dye differently. the resulting effect is a lamp with different Colors (sometimes within the same leaf).

Once the leaf is stained, it is adhered to a heat resistant backing; similar to the backing found on any standard lamp. the artists cut each leaf to ensure that no leaf will overlap. finally, we use a strong sealant to ensure the stability and integrity of the shade.
