This is a lamp and shade I have longed to make as a dedication to the gorgeous women of the old burlesque era. Unlike the striptease of later days, burlesque was truly an art form or a form of art if you will.

The lamp is a female torso made of hard plastic. It stands 23 inches tall and 15 inches wide. In my own inimatable style of trying to make each and every lamp I create unique, I thought to put the on\/off switch in what seemed to be a perfect place . . . her chest. And since I was going the distance with this creation, I thought why not put a pasty on the other side. And to go one step further, why not make the pasty revolve when the lamp is switched on??? So . . . turn the switch once and the lamp lights illuminating the shade. Turn the switch a second time and the light goes off but the pasty revolves at a relatively slow speed. Turning the switch a third time and both the lamp lights and the pasty revolves. A fourth time and all goes off.

You will notice two different lamp shades with this lamp. Recently I created my Burlesque shade. It bares 40 beautiful portraits of the queens of Burlesque. Rather than adding a single tint to the entire shade, I felt that this particular endeavor required me to tint each lady separately to further enhance the excitement of the lamp. You will also notice the lamp shade designed for my breast lamp. Both work this lamp and I offer you a choice of your favorite . . . whichever one tittilates you the most.

Both shades are 10 inches in diameter on the top and 14 inches on the bottom with a 10" in drop make the total height of the lamp and shade about 32 inches tall. It really turned out amazing. I find myself walking into the room where she sits just to turn her on and watch the pasty revolve and marvel at the colors and shapes on either shade.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to start a conversation with me. I love hearing from all the creative people in the world.

Thanks as always for visiting my shop. Please take a moment to peruse my other creations. And remember, with me everything is possible. Take care, your friendly neighborhood creative pal, Paul W.
