Lampshades Made Out Of Food?

I like the thought behind the idea, and the design looks semi-futuristic, but I am not to sure if I would have these items in my room, especially with pets around.

But these lampshades, are designed from a food I don't enjoy on the dinner table--squash.

(Israel 21st Century) Shuli Levin's lampshades look so good you could almost eat them. But rather than cultivate the squash-like gourds that grow outside his studio in Bnei Zion, a moshav north of Ra'anana, for food, the intrepid Israeli industrial designer transforms their fibers into hip, cutting-edge eye candy for the home.

The 33-year-old former kibbutznik, carpenter, and exhibition designer's business-conscious idealism combined with his novel use of raw material, ecologically and socially conscious manufacturing process, put him at the forefront of innovative Israeli design now beginning to command the world's attention.

On a side note, these would make interesting conversation pieces, and could end up inspiring a "house trend." Either way, this approach to house furniture is just another way of Jews thinking outside of the box.

Note: I wonder if one could make these out of pumpkins?
