"Light It Up - The Lamp"
One of the galleries where I show my work asked if I might consider making a few pieces of 'functional art'. . . If you follow my blog you know I make 'memory mirrors' - these are considered functional art because not only are they mirrors, but they are also beautiful pieces of art.
When I stopped to think about it, several things came to mind. Lamps, candle sticks, clocks, even tables to mention a few. I am currently working on a few pieces, and they are coming along, and I will show them on this blog in a few weeks.
This lamp is my first attempt.
A wood lamp base, found at a thrift store in Cayukos, California last summer, provided the perfect substrate for this project. When I found the lamp, I knew it would need to be re-wired (a new skill), and it needed a lampshade.
There is a lot to see on this piece. I tried to show you all 4 sides with the images above. Please click the image to take a closer look.
In the end, I was very happy with the final piece.
What do you think? I would love to get your feedback.
