New light designs

the base on this one is all wood
As the winter gets grayer and darker out here in Vancouver  in the rain forest belt (temperate kind) I decided making some new lights would help brighten my days. One of the new lights uses stone for the base, which acts as a great counter-weight for cantilevered shades. I'm using LEDs  in the lights as usual. 
One light is another sculpture using some acrylic tubing that Phyllis Tucker (no relation) generously gave me.

glow in the dark bull rushes???

stone base

the arc goes up about 7 inches

I just like the contrast of rectilinear and curved


  1. wow Peter these are wonderful and very

  2. Where did you get your stone base? I have been trying to make the arco lamp for around a year now, and the base is proving difficult!

    1. I made the bases from soapstone blocks I purchased at Lee Valley. Interesting stuff to work with.
