©2018 Barry Smith - I love the curly bit on this smaller Artisan Lamp - about 20cm high
I got some time both yesterday and today to put the finishing touches to four lamps in all: I finished grinding and polishing the last two from Friday so I was able to assemble them and add cords and light fittings; I put a new cord on the lamp with the pulley wheels as the rocker switch on the first cord was faulty; and I finished the assembling a fourth lamp and added the cord and light fittings.

Few photos of three of the lamps.

I also did a bit of clean up of the work surfaces in the garage-studio and discovered parts for another two lamps that I think will come together during the week.
