wired - lamps



 This series grew from my love of, and my shop's thick collection of, materials, parts and hardware. I find such character in industrial and functional objects and select them based on their shape, form, visual weight, color, and material - often everything except their designed and intended purposes. Then, by physically assembling the pieces - stacking, connecting, manipulatin. . . - I find structure in each sculpture and a balanced composition reveals itself. This series has evolved into a collection of refined sculptural lamps assembled from these unlikely materials; machine parts, oversized hardware, gears, tools. . . There are very few prefabricated lamp parts in this series, as even the harp holders have been custom fabricated from flat copper stock for proper fit and function. The process of creating this series - collecting, cutting, drilling, sanding, altering, assembling, wiring. . . - has been a true joy. I hope that you enjoy the work. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me.


         Lamps from this series can be purchased at Eastcote Lane in Devon, Pa.
