  • I love your lamps. They remind me of a suveryor’s lamp that is sold by PB. In fact, I’ve been looking for a tripod so that I can make a similar lamp! Were they very expensive?

    • Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately I am not able to help you with any prices on these cool lamps. I wish you all the best with your search for your perfect lamp.
