Machine Age inspired table lamp
This handmade table lamp is offered here exclusively. It is completely handmade. The steel was hand formed to this shape and the metal distressed to achieve an aged look prior to being clear coated. The base it made of 1/4" steel with a used automotive clutch plate welded to it. As the base winds it's way up, it intersects with a handmade friction bearing that allows for approx. 30 degrees of travel for the arm. Given the weight of the base, the arm can freely travel without fear of tipping. The arm of the lamp meets with a handmade fixture that is enclosed with wire mesh over a hand formed polished metal reflector. I love this lamp but I do this for a living & if I kept everything I fell in love with I'd be a homeless man under a bridge with great furniture and lighting.
