Metalamp....

Another lamp is finished....this one was sitting on the shelf of unfinished projects...(SOUP..... )It is a very simple square box made with perforated metal sheet,and some aluminium sample sheets/Inside there is a white LED,a 3V coin cell,and a  50 Ohm resistor.The metal wire the lamp is hanging from is a temporary solution until I get some chain.

Working on lamps....

I finally finished one lamp,had to flatten some more coins,and redesigned the other slightly.The LED light that was in that one wasn't very effective.So I removed it,and put a piece of aluminium sheet in its place.
Strictly speaking it's not a lamp anymore but a.....lantern I guess.
The other one was only waiting for some Egyptian coins I bought online,and a few flattened coins.
Now the projects I'm working on are :a magbot pendulum with a very large coil and some more lamps.
The redesigned lantern,without light but with flattened coins......

Making it in (The) Style......

In this case The Style refers to a Dutch art movement from around the 1915's.Its most famous member was Piet Mondriaan (aka Mondrian) and it is his work I'm using as an inspiration for two new projects:a Mondrian Magbot Pendulum and a Mondrian Pummer.For the Magbot I'm trying to incorporate the stand into the design.
