Sun Lamp!

Hey. Here is another lamp. This steel and copper sunrise/sunset is wired up with a light and dimmer. It provides excellent mood lighting, as a little bit of light passes through the spaces in the copper giving it a nice warm glow. 
This is one of the first pieces that i have used this much paint on. I mixed and layered different colors of enamel to give the look of a sunset or sunrise. I will probably start to use more color in my work, because I am so happy with the way this one turned out. 
This piece already has a new home on the mantle of my grandma's fireplace. I love you Nana. I would love to do a piece like this again if commissioned. The design could be done in almost any size, smaller or much larger.
Everyone have a safe and happy New Year. Keep watching for more artwork and news.
