The tiki faces look cool on these lamps! Like the latest color combination too. Thinking about my post-Xmast order!!! Which one do I select-all look fantastic and quality workmanship, not made in China on these! Mahalo!

Hey WestAdad, we saw it up close and personal and it is truly beautiful Roge is the man of lamps. Just think he's the real deal from the 60's.

Quasimodo57 we will have our next lamp in around two weeks. It will gave you even more color combos to ponder.

I'd love some feedback on this. I may be sculpting a Bumatay for his lamps. We would like to do one and add some resin shells and starfish to the chunks. We love the Bumatay fish face from the Islander mugs. Comments welcome, Wendy

Cool WestADad, Roge is working on a new lamp design just for this fish! Also he is making a multi-colored lamp for us and I'll have photos soon. Thank your for you note. Wendy

Cool, a budget priced red Tiki lamp, good idea. I think I like the two-tone (or three) lamps best, were you combine red orange and black, or green and blue and a similar shade.

One thing also has to be taken into consideration: Digital photography does an inadequate job at separating such highly saturated colors, they all sort of gel together. In person, resin lamps look even better and more yummy than in pictures.

Sven, thanks for your note. It is so true that its hard to capture these in photos. They look so much better in person. Wendy

Yup, it's solid, dense resin. You don't want that to drop on your foot.
I must admit I did it the lazy way:



That is an old-style, well-anchored vent. It was in the perfect spot, right over the TV coffee table.

Hi Sven, WestADad was your Santa from beginning to end. The joy he felt in doing something incredibly nice for you really brought the spirit of Christmas back home. In fact it brought it into your home!

Roge and I were very happy that he shared his goal of being your Santa with us. We have felt his excitement each day as the lamp made its journey south. Your posting of all these photos has been a joy for both him and for us.

WestADad, your 8 year old son has a super father. I am floored by your generosity. Sven, Roge and I have a terrific new/old friend. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. What a great guy you are.

Sven, I'm super happy that you have this lamp in your home thanks to WestADad. Here's a few photos of your lamp in the shop. Your lamp is also in photos on
page 1.







Hey WestADad do you have a photo to share? You pulled it off you really surprised him. Christmas Cheers, Wendy

I got my lamp yesterday, it is great! I don't have any idea where I'm going to hang it yet but I will eventually.

The thing is amazing when lit. Sven and Wendy, I hope you enjoy your lamps as much as I will enjoy mine.

Chris the blues are beautiful too - they radiate almost as much light as you do
