We've begun to ship!
Hi everyone, here's what's happening with all things Orrery Lamp:
A month ago we received our shipment of custom foam packaging for all of our Table Lamps. We did some stress-inducing drop tests (viewable on Instagram) with a lamp inside to ensure the fit was just right for our product.
Since then, Shawn and I have been assembling these lamps of varying colors and sizes to ship them out ASAP. This assembly is a very slow and delicate process due to the minuscule size and precise orientation of some of the components involved in the swivel mechanism.
Last week we had our first 5 table lamps fully assembled and boxed up, along with each backer's respective Calibration Print:
I can't express how satisfying it is to slip each of these hard-won lamps into a custom foam insert, along with the accompanying hand-blown glass diffuser, hand-etched wooden Earth, E12 light bulb, and colorful 6-foot cord. The design does not stop at the lamp.
I decided to add a few small marks on the cork base to signify each lamp's unique value in this production run of 150. OL = Orrery Lamp, TM = Table Midnight, 3/34 = This is the 3rd midnight blue table lamp of 34, BG = my initials.
So far we've shipped 5 table lamps to Oklahoma, New York, California, and Australia.
Thank you for your patience, everyone! See you soon in a mailbox near you.
