Tobacciana

One day, when I was trapped in a phone meeting in my home office, dying of boredom, I escaped onto the Internet and stumbled on cigar box lamps – usually a pile of flat cigar boxes with a shade impaled on top.

Needless to say, that didn’t appeal to me at all, but it did remind me about the old wooden box full of glass tubes I had, and how those tubes were the exact diameter of a particular light bulb I’d seen.

A few minutes later I had a sketch. And a few days after that, the first Not Just a Cigar Box Lamp was born.

Not Just a Cigar Box Lamp #2

Not Just a Cigar Box #3

I had some tubes left over after #3, so I made something similar, but different.
