New spin on an old idea... resin netted centered, bamboozled, shelled, torched, stained, glued, nailed, many houred.

Gor-geeeeeeeee-ous!
I'm a huge fan of your lights. Do the shells on the bottom show light when the lamp is lit?
Very inspiring.

Thanks Mr. Pupu Pants... your place is super inspiring! I'm always looking forward to an update on it!

The lamp is for aquarama, a TC customer that wants to hard wire it in to his ceiling, so I don't have a pic of it lit yet. I mocked it with a flashlight just to see what light would do, and yeah, it does make those shells light up. Maybe aquarama will post a pic of it when it's all rigged in his place.

Another hit out of the ballpark, Woody!

An absolutely beautiful piece of functional art.

A labor, but a labor of love.

Some fine work there, Woody!

I love how all the browns work together in harmony.

I'm sure they'll all have new home before the weekend is over!

I look forward to seeing them!

Here's a shot of a lamp I made a while back. It's hanging in my buddy Jamie's tiki bar.
I'll be making more lamps for the Forbidden Island sale in Alameda to make some dough so I can buy some goods from some sweet artists! Yeah!
