Beautiful lamps crafted from re-purposed materials


There is an inherent beauty in the Steampunk-ish old timey lamps from artist Cory Barkman. He has just sent us images of the latest batch of lamps. Like their predecessors, these lamps are made mostly from repurposed materials. Cory starts off work with a design and idea, foraging for exact parts that would blend, work well with the lamps. If the artist is unable to find parts for the meticulously designed lamps, he gets to work forging them by himself.

Valve and gauges used in the lamp all have functions to perform. They may serve as switches, dimmers and gauges while the gauges can be used to display time and temperature.
