Beauty in both the short and the tall

Jo St Baker asked me to make a few more Artisan Lamps for her studio-gallery in Redcliffe - it would appear that the lamps sell well in the industrial-Steampunk setting of her gallery.

I had made one blowtorch lamp before heading off to NZ; and had time to make 4 more before she dropped in to pick the lamps and some jewellery up on Saturday morning.

As always there are a couple of pieces that are favourites.  These included the small and tall lamps below.

Not to say the other three aren't attractive as you can see.

I have added a photo of the stash of jewellery heading into Jo's studio-gallery.

Over the weekend I was working on a commission of 20 Leaf Letter-openers - but that is for another time.
