A little more on the lamps

©2018 Barry Smith - Simple wooden shoe form lamp with a stable brass heel section - I was going to put a light shade on but think  the clean lines as it is should work.
There was not a lot of art time over the weekend. Still I managed to do threading, grinding and polishing on three of the lamps.

See photos below of the lamp bits on the grinding-polishing workbench; and a before and after shot of one of the groups of bits.

I have roughly assembled the three lamps including the one built around the shoe form at start od the blog and the other two below. .

I need: more time, glue and cables to finish them off. All going well I might get back to them during next week.


  1. They make more sense when you see them put together.

  2. love watching these come together!

  3. I LOVE the shoe lamp B. Has it a home yet .... if not, maybe it could find one here??

  4. I liked the shapes and colors of the pieces, but seeing them together is the most satisfying.
