Skip, I've been a fan of your lamps fo evva. Your love of detail, your aging techniques, the visible time spent on each piece make them the only lamps I would hang among my vintage ones. One day I am gonna get me one of those cork ones!
Although I do make most of my lights from the ground up sometimes I get lucky and find old parts
that help with that old look. (as seen below)
Because they ARE old, it's hard to get that patina.
And that is THE goal, to get them to look like the old lights.
The book of Tiki was the guide I used to
get ideas for lights.
Plus that book threw gas on the small flam that was tiki and kept it
going and getting bigger so I could sell lights!!
So Thanks Sven!!!!
Maker of TIKI bar lighting, Let me make one for you.
