A new material
In this project I was searching for some material that people often neglected, a material that is not man-made and can be dissolved in nature. The ‘Egg lamp’ was completely made from natural materials. I used this name for it because I used membranes of eggs to make the lampshade. The membrane has a very strong structure which is suitable for this job. Under the microscope you will see the layers that are stacked on top of each other, and this is what makes the egg membrane sturdy and stretchable. When it is wet, it feels like human skin. When the material dried up, it feels like paper.
