A friend of mine, and like a real friend not just a 'My Space' friend but he is a friend on my 'My Space' page so I guess ahhh to complicated, let's just say this guy, renowned artist Kerry Gammill, was invited to Rick Baker's Halloween art show last week and took some great shots of the event and art. Really inspired and my goal (32 for those playing along at home) for next year is to take part in a show or dare I say it...Have a show! but that is a whole 'nother post so without further adieu...…

hey man,
ive been building steampunk lamps for a year or so now. I, lately, have been using cast iron x-mas tree stands, and wide mouth beekers, bulb sockets, and fabric wrapped power cables.

Anyways, Ive got a question for you. What type of bulb are you using on your lamp? it looks really good, and i could use it on my other lamps. ive called lots of other light bulb shops all over the u.s. with no avail. Could you please email me where to find your particular lightbulb? p.s. you should build a tripod lamp using a cast iron xmas tree stand and rounded bottom, wide mouth, chemistry beeker. mount the beeker on top of the xmas tree stand and wire it up with, maybe, an antique bulb.

anyways, let me know what type of bulb you have in your green nightlight, the one at this website, because i want to build a lamp with the light bulb that you used in this lamp. thanks, chef Luis Pernia

Here is the link of the light that you build, whose bulb i would like to purchase several at a time.

Thanks a lot,
Chef Luis Alfonso Pernia
