It all started with a birthday present I made for my wife, a bedside light from a vegetable steamer. We were amazed by how good of a lamp it is, being able to open and close and also, because the bulb is off center I allowed it to be rotated so that the light could be aimed at a 360 degrees circle. Plus it created amazing light textures around it and projected them all over the room at night. She could aim it right at her book and let me sleep in the dark.

After that we decided to take it seriously and work on designing it as a lighting product. We sought and found the perfect steamer for the job, and made this hard wired model so it can be installed on a wall junction box. We developed a tilt that's connected to its rotation so the light beam can be aimed in any direction, developed a reflector and a small handle to help with opening and closing, and gave it a long life energy efficient xenon bulb that gives a warm light color tone. We even filed a patent on the three dimensional light control aperture shade and designed the packaging.

We offer this lamp in a brushed finish

Some technicalities:

* Sizes: 5.5" diameter when closed, 9.5" when open
The wall plate is 5" wide and the lamp's distance from the wall is 3.75"
* supplied with a low voltage 20W xenon bulb that is twice more efficient in its energy use than a regular incandescent (equivalent to a 40W incandescent) and has a longer life span of 10,000 hours.
* To be mounted on a standard electrical junction box.
* All electrical components are UL registered.
* Packed in an elegant recycled box, fit for a present.

This light is also available with a frosted bulb that gives out softer light textures: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=42406302
If you prefer to receive the lamp with a frosted bulb instead of the default clear bulb, please say so in your comments.

Some Etsy feedbacks we got for this lamp:

"we installed two Steamlight Sconces at the top and bottom of our staircase - unique, dreamy, and fully functional. The compliments keep coming. Ships in a nice, reusable box."

"we adore this sconce - it is in my toddler son's room, and he loves looking at the light patterns."
