The beauty of brass and copper - Steampunk lamps

Over the weekend I put the finishing touches to 6 copper and brass Steampunk lamps. All these lamps are assembled from salvaged copper and brass industrial objects. They all have vintage ceramic and brass light fitting that Fiona and I bought in Prague; and are fitted with two prong plugs and filament globes.

In themselves they are beautiful small unique industrial assemblage sculptures. But the bonus is that they are also functional - the lights work.

These 6 beauties  (3 smaller and 3 larger) have made their way into my online shop. Whilst I love them myself- and Fiona has had her eye on a couple - they need to be loved in new homes as are earlier ones I made.  Photos of the 6 follow.

Hope you enjoy.


  1. Just love them all! Barry, these are so cool. I will eventually want one, or maybe even two but I have to wait. I hope you keep making them.

  2. Hi C - every home needs one or two. Glad you enjoyed viewing them. Go well. B
