I have been busy in my workshop, creating all new one-of-a-kind light fixtures from miscellaneous salvaged parts.
I’m an electrician by trade and thought it would be fun to make a light fixture using conduit and glass insulators.
The fixture is made with a 36″ long piece of 1″ conduit and 5 Hemingray glass insulators. The new vintage style cloth covered wire is copper in color. It hangs from a pulley with #4 bare copper ran thru it and attached to grounding clamps on each end of the fixture. The glass insulators are approx. 3 3/4″ high. These are old insulators so there are some very minor imperfections which add to the overall character of the fixture.
This simple metal globe light is bronze and black in color and comes with a 60W white lamp.
The light has a 15′ cord with a plug on the end. The globe measures 16″ across and is 11 1/2″ tall.
I had this modern glass vase sitting in the shop and thought it would make an unique looking light. It’s red on the outside and black inside. It’s 13″ high and 10″ wide at the bottom.
Finally, I took this traditional style school house lamp and updated it with a repurposed metal basket. It has a 14′ cord and plug, but could be easily hardwired and would look great with any decor.
