This one's got it all!! Izolan, silk, copper roses which I cut (ouch!) and made the patina in a primitive Tupperware fume chamber with salt and ammonia. Even Brillo pads for cleaning pots and pans!! My art has been going off on a tangent lately and I've been working and combining all sorts of things along with felt. I like the contrast of organic and inorganic materials in my projects.
This is an interesting project!! I've got myself a bunch of crying eyes which absorb sunlight during the day and then glow in the dark at night. I really tried to capture the effect with my digital camera...........I hope somehow you can get an idea. Most of these things are better seen live in action since I'm such an amature in photography!!

Why? Because it reminds me of the beat up old station on the Grateful Dead album!! This was made from driftwood which I collected all summer combined with felt to cover up a couple of my here's and there's. It's a lamp- not to light up your room but to create an atmosphere!! Especially in the dark where the light plays with wonderful designs on the wall!!
