Things that work?

Yep, I’ve started making some functional objects. So far it’s just a few lamps and some manipulated furniture, but it’s a start. I’m working on selling the lamps at a store in Kansas City, and I’ll be sure to let you know when they’re available. Hope you like ’em.

Lamps. Recycled condiment containers, paint, light fixtures and bulbs.
