  1. WOW Steph, how do you find these things!!!!!! I live in Paris, read the magazines, LOVE to go to BHV, was there a week ago, and never heard of these “lanternes” which are fabulously fun.
    Speaking of lanternes, Monday the 6th is Chinese holiday “Lantern day” festival of light. Very big holiday, parades of lanternes in the towns, contests on creative models…… This year, year of the dragon is supposed to be particularly good and exciting! Good source of inspiration.

    1. I got a hold of this artiste through a Facebook link. Since I won’t be going to this exhibition, it would be great if you went to go and let me know how do these lamps look in real. Also I am very intrigued how they are being made. May be have a close look and let me know.
      Thanks for the Chinese New Year. I will look into it. Any sugesstions of creative ideas or artists you saw in Paris, regarding the Chinese new year ?

  2. You also might like to check out the custom of Lantern Riddles during the Chinese New Year.
