Imaginative whimsical lamp includes chalice, fish, thermometer and glass door knob. It is our
pleasure to bring to you this fanciful lamp. A "never to be ignored" piece. Truly unique item for
your home that will delight friends and family. Silver plated metal goblets hold lamps with Edison bulbs and highlighting an antique brass thermometer with a metal fish looking on. Supported by a serving tray with an exotic wood base. An antique glass and brass door knob, set in the middle, turns lamp on and off. All of the lamp electrical components are new.
I've gone to many Estate Sales in the area. Estate Sales are where I purchase many of the items used in my sculptures. The possessions give insight into the type of person that collects the items. You find out what was important to the person. The clothes that they wore. The hobbies that they enjoyed. For me, it's more about the people that once owned the possessions than about the stuff itself. However, I must admit that I enjoy ferreting out items that no one else has found. Interesting finds in crawl spaces or secret hideaways. People will ask me, "where did you find that?" For me, it's a scavenger hunt, a treasure hunt and a quest to decipher what the former owner was like in their life.
The fish was once part of a serving tray. The thermometer housing came from a steam engine. The base, silver plate, held a warming tray. The goblets once toasted great family events. The glass door knob in the center is the on/off for the lamp.
All of the electrical components are new.

My name is Jonathan Drury (DruryLaneStudios.com). I have 20+ years experience with industrial design and construction. A background that helps me break down tasks into manageable steps. Also, it helps me to create art using approved methods.
I've been making lamps from industrial materials for 15 years. It is a pleasure to reuse interesting items that I come across in my travels. To make my lamps it takes tools. I have more tools than all of my neighbors-combined. Tools means having potential. With tools I have the potential to create amazing pieces that require welding and machining. With tools I can make things.
I count Frank Buchwald and Art Donovan as great influences for my work.
