About this project

People ask me: why aren’t you making a living building and selling your Circuit Board Lamps?  The answer is as with many creative projects: time, money and market visibility.  It’s also a matter of having a substantial body of work to show and individual pieces that are practically priced.  I spent a lot of my resources figuring out fabrication procedures, building a handful of prototypes and getting responses from the public.  Now it’s time to move into the next phase, to put the accumulated information into practice, to make a full time investment in production and marketing.    Take a moment to peruse the flickr link to see more of the completed sculptures.

    These are stator circuit boards with copper windings that light up nicely when set in a sunny window. You can see them posted on the flickr link along with the magnet knobs and circuit board lamps. Your choice between the small 2"/5cm stator or the large 3 1/4" / 8cm stator or spring for one of each.

    an illuminated wall mounted circuit board panel enclosed in it's wooden frame. these will measure about 24x12x3 and hang on the wall like a picture. likew the freestanding sculptures, they can be lit in green, blue, red or yellow with either led strings or compact flourescents and unlike the sunlit panels, they won't rely on natural light at all.
