Great lamps!! Good job! I love last two the most!
Many can argue about styles and such, but very little in Tiki is really new or original, but Skip is right, it is about finding your signature.
Tiki lamp styles, as we know them today, have been around for many years and first been done by Oceanic Arts and Orchids of Hawaii.
Glass floats for example, has been around as early as 1840 and been used to hold fishnets.
During tiki craze back in the hayday, they were beach-comed along with crab traps and placed in restaurants, and later, got lights stuck in the them. You are not stepping on anyone's toes by making your lamps, don't get discouraged. Lets see some more!!
