I love how your creative mind finds castaway "stuff" and transforms it into cool lamps

Thanks Mike.
It was great to see you again Lena.
Nice to talk to someone who is just as nutz about tiki lights as I am.
Here is another light, I think this is the style you saw Lena.
Going to put this up on ebay Mon eve.
All paper globe so this one is lite.
Plus it has it's own chain for to hang.

Thanks Boris.
KAHAKA this light has many steps to it.
So it takes awhile to make, my best guess would be 16 hours.
But the way I make em is I may do some work on that light one day
and not touch it for a year.
At this time I got tons of lights half done.
Mostly cool odd ball lights I'm kinda stumped on.

Here are some float lights I just finished.

Now go pack your bags for a lamp-making workshop tour in Europe."

MarkusK you and my wife were right so I fixed it I think.
What you think?
This will also make this light much stronger, Thanks for the tip.

Here's my latest, I think it maybe my greatest.
Been working on it for over a year off and on.
Making the scenes on each leg of the starfish is a blast!
This one is Three d, Got stuff on the inside globe, stuff on the outside globe.
The starfish are HUGE and are from the Kahiki, hard to get em this big.
Going to hold onto this light as my wife wants it.
I am not done with this light yet but will be soon, Then I will show the glow.

Shark Week! He's smiling! I really like the double starfish with the mini dioramas, very cool. I like the "sea creature secretions" look with the shells and such in it too.

I was at my old friends house the other day, we used to skateboard together make ramps, Go to the principals office ect..
And he's still into skating at 50+ so he tells me about the Coleman slide a new trick he picked up.
Now this guy grew up with me and was skatin back when I was, he got Skateboarder mag, well
our pal Coleman took the Ty slide (as in Ty Page, ya I know he's not Dogtown and sucks) but
this guy Coleman put a slight tweek on the Ty slide and Wham Coleman slide.
Whos Ty Page, what Ty Page? Gone, Ty did it first, Heck Andy was there at the time and he even forgot.

And so it goes with the tiki creators here today gone tomorrow.
It's why a lot of us create, as kind of a legacy you leave behind.
And it's a big part of why I do it.

So here's to you Ty (you tight shorts wearin so and so)
And here's to you Wayne Coombs.
You both were creators with your own style, and I won't forget that style that is yours alone.
(even if that bonehead Andy does)

I think Wayne Coombs put it best.

“It has bugged me forever ... to the point of being real grouchy about it,” Coombs told Rockledge writer and photographer Chris Kridler during a 2006 interview. He also said, “imitation is the sincerest proof of plagiarism.”
