I'm pleased with my lamp. The way it turned out. My lamp uses an odd bulb. Very bright. Made for airports, coastal light houses and theaters. A Lutron dimmer is used to keep the light to a minimum. Actual output is perhaps twenty to thirty watts of a regular household incandescent bulb. You will receive a new, unused bulb with the lamp.

The outer ring of metal started with a 20" heavy metal wheel used in large machining jobs. Using it as a frame I attached some flat metal stock to the wheel and beat the stock into a circular form. The wood used is from large old oak stock. Hand cut, hand sanded and hand rubbed with linseed oil. The wood was so dry you could almost hear it suck in the linseed oil. Probably thirty to forty years old. Large timbers, 4" x 6" x 3'. Found it in an old barn.

This piece took me months to complete. Hundreds of drawings. Lots of technical problems to solve. I'm glad to look at the finished piece and get a glimpse at my possibilities as an artist.

The entire structure stands about 67 1/2" in total height and about 22" wide.

Without a doubt, this is a one of a kind item. Signed and dated by the artist.

My name is Jonathan Drury (DruryLaneStudios.com). I have more than 20 years experience with industrial design and construction. A background that helps break down large projects into small, manageable steps. Also, it helps me to create art using industrial approved methods.

Finally I've acquired the tools (Bridgeport Mill clone) that allow me to make precise custom parts.

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 artwork it takes more than the usual hand tools. Finally I have the tools and know-how to produce the artwork in my imagination. I have more tools than 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 among the influences for my work.

Feel free to drop me a note. Reviews, both positive and negative, are always helpful.

Thank you

Explorer Lamp - different, unique, quite a show piece. When the ordinary won't do.
