Here is a project that has nothing to do with metal-smithing.
Or does it?
Or does it?
I always wanted to make a Lego lamp.
The little blue and red transparent pieces just seemed to be begging for a light inside.
|So I waited to find Legos at yardsales and whatnot until I had enough. But it couldn't be just a bunch of random legos.|
|I decided to make a lamp that tells the story of Alchemy. The base has the four classical elements of Water, Wind, Air and Fire.|
|The individual bursts fourth from these elements in a rather unrefined manner.|
|This is the Fire side. A firefighter with a fire extinguisher and a bomb going up against a fire breathing dragon.|
|This is the calcination portion.|
|Good and evil are separated as are male and female|
|Work still needs to continue, represented by the minifig with a jackhammer.|
|The heads of the snakes of the caduceus.|
|one more angle|
|The water side and the wind side. The wind side has a ghost, a creature of the air. Really I just couldn't figure out anything better.|
|Lots of eyes and tongues. I added lights to the column to give interest. Please write a comment and let me know if you like it.|
