Awhile back i posted the beginnings of this lamp...which wasn't a lamp at all at that stage, just the top half you see with a hand holding 3 shrunken heads instead of one.....anyway, i revamped the design to add the bubbling cauldron light to shine up on it....i have a pair of these lamps..one a right hand the other a left hand.....I made these to trade in return for some of mitch o'connell's artwork, so they are not available for sale....I think he's going to put them on either side of the doorway in his house....just thought you all might get a kick out of it....enjoy!!








detail of the cauldron....




lid lifts up by the skull to change the bulb.....

thanks to both of you.....

the white walls don't do it justice.....try to imagine this lamp on a grass matted wall, surrounded by some foliage and bamboo in a dark tiki bar.....maybe on either side of an entryway as you walk into the room.....then you will see what it was that i saw in making this.....



..i really need to take pics of my lamps in their environments for the full effect....

Very nice Tipsy, how about some construction details? What did you use to make it? Are the heads sculpted clay?

I like the glass "bubbles". I'm working on a "Headhunter Stew" mug and was hoping to incorporate some bubbles. Like little hollow glass balls tethered to the bottom of the mug with monofiliment line. Then they would always be floating on top of the drink. Somehow I don't think it's going to work.
