I made a Tiki floor lamp today. I made a column 12 inches across and 3 feet tall out of fencing wire. I gave it a 45 watt floodlight top & bottom and added a dimmer switch. Then slid a Tiki fabric sleeve over it. I can swap out the fabric sleeve to fit my mood or season if I want.

Thanks guys

New project - I want some jade Chinese tiles but I don't want to pay $100 each for them and I need some 8 inch tiles instead of the standard 12 inch tiles. I've got a white wall, I want to cover some of it with more wood paneling & bamboo and I want to put tiles over the window.


I made a template for the outside and the cut-outs, rolled out a slab of clay, and cut around the template. Then I engraved the lines in. The lines are all done freehand so they are not perfectly symmetrical but that's OK


I put the tile between two pieces of wallboard with a weight on top to dry. It's supposed to help prevent warping and let it dry flat. If it works out I'll need to make several more.

Nice! And, love the floor lamp. I'll have to remember that when I have the space.

Very cool, Mike! I will be watching to see how this tile experiment goes. I've just come to the realization that I need 6-8 for a project in the Lagoon. Alas, there are no very old Chinese restaurants near me sporting jade tiles slated for demolition in the near future.

Clever idea to make your own, I have always liked the not so perfect artwork.

Thanks guys! Jayme, those tiles are available on e-Bay but they don't come cheap

Bisque firing came out well. I'm waiting for some firing supplies to come in so I won't be able to glaze fire for a week. Time to start cranking out 5 more.

What fun to see what you are up too. The lamp is so well done with it lit from top to bottom. The tiles are terrific and using wall board so that they would dry throughout was a brilliant idea. You rock all your projects. Wendy

Thank you Jon and Wendy. I've been having fun being creative again, haven't been doing enough of that recently. Built a lamp tonight, a net full of shells with a blue fish float. It it lit with a string of white Christmas lights, also has a can light in the center pointing down. I also found out that lamps can be difficult to photograph
