How’s this for amazing? Peter Bloch of New London, New Hampshire, takes 200-pound chunks of local aspen wood and turns them into lampshades up to 20 inches in width that weigh less than a pound. “I actually think they are more durable than almost any other kind of lampshade, because they are hard and flexible,” he says. Yet the shades are so thin that they appear translucent when lit. The light also highlights the wood’s rich hues and patterns. Peter makes shades for table, floor, and hanging lamps as well as wall sconces, plus bases and finials to match. $900-$2,700. 603-526-6152. woodshades.com
