So Trendy... I Know...

This is to let you all know that I am on Twitter as of today. I will have to get the hang of posting shorter and more frequently, but I can do it. You can look me up under JemTonic or just hit the link.

Occasional Lamp

The lamp you see here is a lamp that I am working on at the moment. It is in the beginning stages and I hope to have it finished in the next couple days. One aspect of this lamp that I didn't illustrate (which I thought of later), is that this lamp will have the ability to be used as a floor lamp or a hanging lamp. On top of the lamp, there will be feet. These feet will hide the hooks that are used to hang it from the ceiling, and also be the feet on which it will sit while being uses as a floor lamp.

My chosen material is Birch plywood with relief cuts for bending on the inside. The interior will also be painted a gloss white to reflect more light illuminating the room more and not overpowering the look of the lamp.

As soon as I have finished it, I will be sure to post photos on my Flickr with a post to show all finished.
