Work In Progress – Steam Powered Floor Lamp

I still have a little way to go on this, but it’s starting to resemble the final product. Remaining to make are shades for the bulbs and brakets to hold tubing in place.

This piece is made from purchased lamp repair parts, found objects, plumbing parts, and hand fabricated parts. I used all solid brass and copper.

The steam valve on the front is connected internally to a dimmer switch. The power cord exits through the “steam” pipe at the base.

    Thank you!

    Finding new and different ways to do things is one of my favorite aspects of art and craft.
