About this Model
The Lamp-shaped Bowl shown on page 42 is the Standard size for this model, but the author also provides measurement guidelines on page 45 for bowls which are deeper/smaller than the standard and bowls which are shallower/larger than the standard. Using these guidelines, you can make a series of bowls which will nest neatly. There are 19 steps to make each bowl unit; 4 units are required per bowl; there are 4 steps to assemble the units. One bowl requires 4 square sheets of paper, so a set of 8 nesting bowls would require 32 sheets.

Lamps can be assembled from these nesting bowls by covering each bowl with an inverted bowl of the next larger size. It is fun to experiment with different colors and patterns of paper, trying to make the individual lamps look nice while also achieving an attractive combination when the set of bowls is nested. If you want to use the lamps as holiday decorations, being able to nest them for storage during the rest of the year is very convenient.
