Brass band

March 13, 2016

For no particular reason I’m aware of, last year I picked up a lot of brass objects. So, gradually, I’ve been transforming them into lamps of various kinds. Here are the most recent.

As always, they are available in my Etsy shop.


Luck & crackers

July 18, 2012

A couple of years ago, I was browsing the aisles of my local 99 Ranch Market – a great place to kill a spare hour with a friend – when I found these really fun tins (full of crackers, of course). I had to have them.

When the time rolled around to put the tins to use, I found some plain white shades to go on top. But they seemed not quite adequate. Then I remembered the joss paper I’d acquired on another trip to 99 Ranch…and the die was cast.

I’ve been told that the bases and shades seem to be speaking different languages. I can see – or rather hear – that. But given that the bases by themselves speak three or four…well, I don’t see the problem.

Nonetheless, I’m selling all the pieces separately. Visit my Etsy shop for details about the lamp bases and shades. For more pictures, see the Desk & Table lamps page.
