This is the sixth iteration of the Rev. Silas Champworth's Aethereal Plasmatic Spirit Harvester. For those unacquainted with the legend of Rev. Champworth, I repeat it here:

In the early 1900's, the Reverend Silas Champworth, an inventor and admirer of the work of Nikola Tesla, postulated that the strange plasma images in Tesla's globes were actually lost souls, pinned in the glass by the force of electricity. Champworth created a large vessel designed to attract these souls, then capture them. His intent was to use prayer to redeem the souls and help them "find their way to God". The original version of Champworth's "Aethereal Plasmatic Spirit Harvester" contained a charging vessel fully twelve feet high, the largest example of blown glass at that time.

A curious even occured which convinced Champworth he was indeed doing the Lord's work. After praying over several containers containing souls "captured" by his device, Champworth tripped and dropped all the containers. They broke open at his feet and Champworth was "immediately suffused with a most pleasurable sensation, as if I were being enveloped by the wings of angels". Champworth was convinced of the effectiveness of his method, and resisted the ridicule of critics to his dying day.

The Spirit Harvester is a unique and ongoing series created by Will Rockwell. It may be operated continuously and draws 12 volts. This model has a functioning plasma valve on the front, and is made of antique brass and copper parts. The plasma globe is 8" diameter, and the device measures 21" wide, 12" deep and 14" high. This is a major work by Will Rockwell, it is signed and dated and will be packaged and shipped as befitting a work of art.

This device was recently rebuilt after Kimmy knocked it off the shelf. It is now much improved.
