It’s all about the details. This is a look at 50 fasteners individually chemically blackened for a series of lighting projects that I am building. The lights will be posted as they are completed. Stay tuned.
This is one mock-up of a short series of desk lamps I am working on called “Constructus”. Think erector set lighting that you can configure to your liking or needs. I will update with more photos and descriptions when final designs are implemented.
"The Lab" floor lamp is just about complete! All that is left to do is wrap the base with leather, and toss in the electronics (still waiting on those to arrive). I am sorry the pictures are so bad, I was in a rush and the lighting was bad…
I have a few pieces of the steel finished in their new patina. The contrast is something that must be seen in person! This lamp alone already has 31 hours of machining accrued, and stands at about 80-85% completion. I need to do two more designs yesterday….
Here is a few shots of a floor lamp I have been working on. It still needs a base, steel patina, and finishing pass over all of the aluminum. So far, the fixture has been made completely of found objects. It will boast super high output (but low wattage) luminous flux dimmable emitters, and some unique finishing touches. Stay tuned for the finished product.
So I find an old sketch book, and start going through it… What did I find? Some old pieces I had been working on to throw up in my shop. This was just a set, I actually have about ten pages of ideas that never went up. It’s pretty awesome to find this kind of stuff several years after the fact!
