Anything can be made into a lamp!
I make one of a kind, unique vintage lamps. Old objects from the past collected from flea markets, antique shops, yard sales, and even on the beach can be turned into lamps. I take these artifacts to my workshop where I drill, hammer, and fabricate the objects so that new lighting parts and components may be fitted inside. I use a base, pipes, nuts, washers, and electrically compliant electrical cords and sockets. A clip on shade is almost the final addition before I turn on the light.
I have a workshop in Culver City, California which is stacked with vintage items waiting to be turned into lamps. Part of what interests me most is seeing what type of creation I can make using the most utilitarian methods. If you have something in mind, let me know.
