In correspondence, Roge shared his Laguna Lamps story and brochure, the one you just posted. When I looked through the brochure, I realized that I had just seen at least one of his lamps in the Hawaiian Inn at Daytona Beach (see Tiki Modern, pages 260 & 261). So I sent Roge this photo I had taken on December 17 from inside the Polynesian show area. He confirmed it was a Laguna Lamps Model R-102...







The same "Laguna Lamps" also hang (hung?) in the original lobby of the the Tropics Motel n Palm Springs:

Very nice to see the old Laguna Lamps hanging in places of Tiki nobility.

I wonder if these two whoppers that hung at the Castaways Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas came from Laguna Lamps?

Mmmmm... I have several chunk resin lamps... I've never noticed a Laguna Lamp name on them. Do the originals have a logo or name on them? Anybody know?

Can you post pictures of them Bongo? I can email them to Roger Bodine and ask him if he made them.

Hi Wendy, On the lamps, they look like Laguna Lamps but the first photo is a long photo shot and I can’t see any details. The shape is correct, but there could be a copy cat lurking about. But….seems like everyone that made lamps had their own unique style, design and shapes. Get me a close up and I will probably be able to tell you for sure. Looks like a #102 which was the most popular shape.



Second photo on the left shows a 3 sided pyramid, then a reversal. If you look at the Laguna Lamps brochure, that is called a #103 (rather rare because not too many were purchased). The other one on the right is not a good enough photo for me to tell. Get a straight on close up for me and I’ll let you know. Roge

This is super fun. I love how you are all tying Laguna Lamps/ Roger Bodine to all these super cool tiki places. I hope you all will continue to find and document his place in tiki history. Cheers, Wendy

Wendy & Dan, to answer Bongo Bungalo’s question below, I never put any I.D. on the lamps. Sorry to this day. But not sorry I made them, was fun then too. Roge

Hey Roge, Dan and I had an idea concerning your lamps. Why not have them as bedroom lamps. They sure put out a beautiful light. We went to World Market place and for $10 each we bought two wire and rope baskets. We turned them upside down and they are perfect for keeping the lamps ventilated. I wish our photos would show how terrific they look but at least they give an idea. High up or low your lamps are beautiful. Wendy

























Cheers, Wendy

Roge and I are working on the next design that ties his lamps to tiki. This time we are doing a lamp that will have the Bumatay, shells, seahorses and turtles. I've started the step by step photos on my crafts thread but here's where I'm at today with the Bumatay.












Thanks for looking, Wendy

i'm diggin the 3 sided triagular long ones.... any hope of getting one or 2 of them in the future?? I have limited space, so the larger chunk lamps are not an option but i can definately squeeze a couple of those narrow ones, staggered into a corner of the room.

I love the look of the resin chunk swags. I'd like to use several in an outdoor space, but it gets blasted by the sun and I know from prior experience that UV eats up most sythetics there. I'm considering cutting the bottom out of wine bottles and gluing on glass chunks to immitate the effect of the resin chunk style. Any suggestion as to a transparent adhesive that could handle the UV and heat expansion?

Hi Tipsy here is Roge response to your question.


Hi Wendy, the reason for not making too narrow an area between the walls inside is because of heat. Sometimes people will use a 150w bulb and that can discolor the panel (hot spot) due to the heat. Even a 100w is high when too narrow a space. Remember when that bulb is on, you cannot even touch it! So my minimum now is 7” from inside to inside. The resin can burn so safety is important.

Now I can make the lamp with smaller rock/chunks and a bit longer to give it that look. I do not want to end up taking lamps back because of being to narrow.

If someone wants to buy a narrower made lamp unwired and they rewire it for a LED low heat, etc. then I will give them a $30 discount off my wiring parts & labor and no 30 day guarantee. So I am open to discussing this further…….

Hi Tiki Zen, I'm of no help when it comes to making these lamps. I'm the Roge for the tikis but Roge makes the lamps. He doesn't share his trade secrets with me. Sorry I can't answer your question. Maybe Roge or tikiskip can help you. Wendy

We were with Dan's mom all day yesterday so I just worked a bit of clay for Roge's next lamp. The Bumatay will be the center piece and then there will be other sea creatures and shells. I used a 4.5 inch seahorse as a model for a 3.5 inch sculpt.

Mom was so happy I was making something other than a tiki. She wishes I was making dolls which is what she collects. Sorry mom-in-law I love tikis!

Sketched out the seahorse and cut off the excess with a huge knife.


Smoothed it out with my fingers.


Worked on the face and added the backbone.


Added the detail to the back fin.


This is as far as I could go, there is no light in the home. I'll finish it at ours.


So I thought I knew what a turtle looked like because I had one when I was a child.


So I played around with it the rest of the night.


Today I went to google and scanned images under Hawaiian Turtle. Wow was I off. I didn't even have sea turtle in my mind at all. So I'll use this one as a base and fix it until it's like this drawing. I had fun anyway and mom loved it.


There's always something fun to work on, cheers, Wendy

Today when I arrived at my Mother-in-law's home, the birthday present from my wife was awaiting: a Blue & Green Tiki Lamp by Roge Bodine (ArtLampDesignByRoger) with Tikis by Wendy. It is a beautiful work of art! Here are a couple of as-received photos; more to come after I hang it at the beach house next weekend...
