Little Christmas present I built for my gal...
Modern touch sensor makes the Edison bulb 3 way dimmable.
I love the glow these reflectors cast out.
Pairing items... (the item on right is in another posting).
Nice to see projects in their environment sometimes.  ; )

OK I know I build a lot of lamps... I am a sucker for ambiant lighting. This one was a very early heater turned into a dimmable lamp. My girl liked my earlier lamps but wasn't a fan of the copper. This one is unusual as it was painted a great seafoam green and the reflector is chrome.

I think it pairs well with our mix of modern and junk. The little sculpture to the right is in another posting. I will try and show more items in their actual environment in future projects.
