Madame Blavatsky coffee pot lamp

Madame Blavatsky coffee pot lamp

So here’s my latest coffee pot lamp, an ethereal little number named for a 19th-century Ukrainian-born medium. The “shade” originally held a glass serving bowl that’s now gracing a friend’s kitchen, and the percolator came from eBay.

Connecting the bubbler to the top of the shade was the biggest challenge, and required a piece from another coffee pot that was the victim of a screwup by the USPS – which is a long, sad story I won’t go into here.

Anyway, Madame B. is just waiting around for someone to give her a forever home. You can visit and/or adopt at my Etsy shop.
