Things have been a little quiet on the Light With No Sense of Proportion front lately... I've been too busy with my day job, rewiring a friend's house and being crook to work on it.
Anyways I finally hung the streetlight fitting inside the lampshade to try it out: Unfortunately it's not all good news.
|The ghostly sodium spirit.|
The result looks pretty cool, it's almost getting towards my desired streetlight with christmas lights aesthetic.
The mass of the lampshade and streetlight together is a little greater than expected... As a result the pipe bends a lot more than I would like.
So the use of Plan B is necessary: The pipe will now be cantilevered from the first floor "balcony" with a top stay to prevent the pipe from drooping. Stay Tuned...
