Tall Desk Lamp

I hadn’t really planned to build any more copper pipe lamps, but now Autumn is drawing in and the evenings are getting dark. And all the spare pieces of piping in the garage started calling me. It’s not quite finished yet, but there’s enough there to get an idea now…

This lamp is large – it stands about three and a half feet tall. It’s supposed to look like large sparks will be emitted at any moment. It probably needs some external wiring or coils to carry this off properly. As before, the nice amber glow of a dimmed squirrel cage bulb doesn’t really come across on camera.
