Bordello Floor Lamp

Bordello floor lamp 001

Forged Steel, Blown Glass
dimensions 60"x12"x16"

September 2011

This lamp was fabricated for the Guild's exhibit at the Perry Mansion, and is a continuation of the Bordello Lamp series that I have been working on for about 10 years.  The main feature that qualifies the lamp to be a part of the series is the shade.  Initially the lamps shades had colored and textured paper, but now, through a collaboration with glass artist Carlyn Ray, we have successfully blown glass into the shades.

Dr. Deskenstein

Dr. deskenstien lo-res

Gray Elm
dimensions 30'h. x 75"w. x 18"d.

July 2005

Dr. Deskenstein is named that due to the number of walnut "stitches," or splines, it took to hold it together.  So I designed a steel base made from 2' x 2" angle steel so if it came to life and started to walk it would have that heavy clunking sound the monster had in the movie.  I wanted the village folk to scream if they saw it walking down the street.
