These are my galactic fleet of Battlestar lamps, “Battlestar Left” and “Battlestar Right.” They were commissioned by the lovely Miss Speare. Being direct descendents of JFK005 (see next post) they incorporate the form and function of the same three elements of , hand made veneer shade, recycled automobile break light and a video game controller.
The three ring veneer shade is made of Birch with a Cherry overlay. The cut outs in the overlay are of Mack, my last name, and strawberries which Miss Speare loves. The Atari Paddleball controller is a dimmer for the upper lamp and the red button on the side turns the big red break light on and off. I was never able to figure what car the break lights came from. But I do know they are sweet lookin and they remind me of the engines on the Battlestar Galactica. Here are a few more pics. Enjoy!
