Honestly, this was one of my very first floor lamps. A client wanted me to create a floor lamp that was really different. That was a wide open invitation to go way outside the box. I had been experimenting with some copper screen and had just discovered this bronze screen door screen at local hardware store. The game was on.
After a lot of trial and error, I landed on this idea. The bloom is constructed from five, square, hemmed, bronze screen pieces. I came up with a way to stack the five different sized screen pieces and then pull them into some copper tubing. It's a complicated process but it yields a beautiful bloom of bursting bronze screen. No two are ever the same. The pole is made of two different diameter sections of copper tubing. Some decorative rings were soldered to the poles at the transition point. The pole is oxidized to a light brown patina. The rings are polished and lacquered. The base is fabricated from two squares of mottled, brown, Paperstone (an environment friendly, counter top material). The paperstone is sanded, oiled, waxed, and polished. There is a full range dimmer inside the pole with the knob on the back of the lamp.
Dimensions: 68" Tall x 10" square (at the base) with an 18" dia. bloom.
