More pics from last year....this variation on the dodecahedron lamp - resin panels with a design instead of starfish inclusions - is at Kon Tiki in Tucson.

Also at Kon Tiki...I'm pretty sure the one in the foreground is Orchids of Hawaii...not so sure about the wall lamp behind (OA, maybe?)

These are at Omni Hut in Smyrna, TN.


Omni Hut also has an big, multi-paneled (seahorse panels) wheel-shaped lamp. I think I have a pic of it somewhere.
Swanky posted some nice pics of Omni Huts Orchids lamps here:

Here are a few photos of the BL113 and the BL112. They are from the kahiki.

Beautiful lamps, all of them.

I've also been trying to find out what those polygon bamboo lamps are called. According to the online store below, the implication is they would be called simply "bamboo hanging lights":

http://www.myriahs.com/publishhome/lights.html

I got several photos of them in Disneyland's Adventureland 3 years ago, when sitting in the Tiki Room front courtyard, zooming around the grounds with my new camera & telephoto lens. Some were hanging from the Tiki Room building itself, others were on the balconies across the walkway from the Tiki Room in the 2-story buildings. I've got the photos around here somewhere, but as with all my other things, they would probably take days to find. Still, if anybody's especially interested I'll try to find them and post them.

The Pizza Oom-Mow-Mow restaurant in Disney's California Adventure has a number of these hanging from the ceiling.

Those starfish embedded with the bits of blue glass in the windows are probably Crown of Thorns Starfish since they each have twenty-three arms:



That's a Sunflower Starfish:

A Crown of Thorns starfish is very spiny and venomous, and I doubt anyone would be foolish enough to try to make a lamp out of one:

Just some technical info for the record. We must'nt get our starfish species wrong.

Here are some BL112 & BL113s Installed in my friends bar, In columbus ohio. They are from kahiki. The bar is more pirate than tiki, but I'm working on him.

Cool!
The lamps are great. I love the pirate/tiki crossover.
I have a big treasure chest I'm about to set up in my living room.

Soon I'll be posting pictures of my big chest it's overflowing booty.
Yar!

Hey TJL,
Any chance you could restore the pics on the first page of this thread? I would really love to see them--I need some heavy inspiration for some upcoming lamp projects I have in mind. Thanks, bro.

I think that these are Orchids of Hawaii lamps. They look like they were intended to be hardwired and they have grounding wires. Missing shades though.

I SOOOOOOO want one of these for my home lounge! Bob at Oceanic Arts tells me that this exact lamp is listed in the 1991-1992 Orchids of Hawaii catalog as their #BL6 17" x 16" at $129.00 each.

I saw this lamp referred to earlier in this thread as a "polygon" shape. Someone else called it an octagon. And then I saw "dodecahedron", which sounds like that could be the ticket. I suppose to be exact one would have to count the exact number of facets this lamp has and then that would lead to the correct shape name.

Studying the pic carefully, though, I see that it would have ten pentagonal panels, plus one pentagonal openings on the top for the light to go in and either a bottom panel or pentagonal opening on the bottom for more light to shine down. So that's 12 facets/sides total. And a 12-sided object would, indeed, be called a dodecahedron, which Wikipedia refers to as a "12-sided polyhedron". (Whew!!)

But, most importantly, does anyone know where to OBTAIN one of these things, or know someone who can CONSTRUCT one? (Hell, if it wasn't so bloody elaborate I could make one myself!)

These lamps are so much tiki in one object and that's why I dig them so much. Does anyone know where they were manufactured? Some of these I have not seen in catalog's so I wonder if they are even orchids lamps at all.
