Some of my friends and colleagues had heard about my new lamp idea months ago. Finally, my first floor lamp was born last week. In the process, there were many hours of joyful but sometimes very challenging work.

I had never had any experience working with metal, so exploring a new technique was not easy. I worked with my friend Sarah Chittenden https://www.facebook.com/thechittendencollection?_rdr=p  whose participation in this project was as much enjoyable as it was necessary. Four hands are obviously much better than two! There was hope and doubt…sometimes laughter but tears too. I even dropped the anvil onto my foot once…

First we used copper rods and tubes to create the body of the lamp. I painted silk with warm, flowing colors and after that we stretched it onto the lamp. Sarah painted the bulb. When we put everything together it was a very exciting moment!
