Pinchofpepper makes a tension lamp

Look at this incredible lamp. (I am taking a small detour from the Christian Hacker house to show you this) it was made by Pinchofpepper. You may be familiar with her work on Flickr.




I had one
just like
it in
college.



It is very heavy made from real metal.

Thank you Pinchof-
pepper it is awesome!



"I get by with a little help from my friends"
Pinch says,"The angle poise lamp is is made up of 2mm and 3mm brass box section tubing held together with piano wire pins. The base is a selection of washers. The lamp shade is the plastic cap which covers the springs on a 6v lantern battery and the teeny springs are fuse wire wound around a thin rod. Then the whole thing was sprayed with radiator enamel paint. The bulb in a 12v grain of wheat bulb."



It is so realistic! I love it, CM

Uh, very cool. I had a similar one in orange in my youth.
I hesitated to ask pinchofpepper to make one for me, I'm glad you did. She is such a nice person!
Thanks for sharing this and thanks for the detour from Hacker ;-)
Have a nice weekend!
