Heaven-And-Earth Lamp

Seemed the right name for this steampunkish lamp. Like the previous one, it's mostly made from PVC pipes, primed and painted copper or aged bronze. However, I wanted to balance the mechanical look with something organic.

So it supports a small terrarium. It just happens to be almost exactly the same size as the bulb on the upper end. And, of course, there are the usual bits of gearing and gauges and such.

The thing about this lamp is that it's very, very big but provides very little light. I could hardly fit it in the photobox, yet it only has a 40w bulb. Is OK; it's a curiosity anyway.
