It was ugly as a table lamp

tehutiJune 17, 2012

I don't now if it's much better now that it's morphed.

Parts used were mostly from several table lamps, one little bottle and some scrap wire and coat hangers.

Hope you like it.

I've limited my post since my camera died and I must rely on my mp3 player.

Urrgh!

What a great project. It is adorable for a mosquito? At least it won't bite?? TYFS. Jlily

That is great. You are doing good with your mp3 player taking pics. It is clear and a good size to see details. I have seen some pics posted and I cannot see the pics because they are too small you cannot see details.

Please post more pics.

Was an ugly lamp, uh? Quite a transformation! Glad to hear that having your camera die didn't 'bug' you! Or it did 'bug' you! Whatever!!! You work is always terrific! TFS! Jeanne S.

I agree with everyone. This lamp makes a really cute garden bug. Very nice work. I also like the wings. Very nice workmanship.

Very cool Robert! Love the wings...did you do the metal work on those or were you lucky enough to find something that looked like wings? The lamp base is a great color and shape! Perfect bug!

That's the kind of mosquito I like!! Safe & doesn't bite! Nice color on the glass part & the wings are really neat would work well on a small plane for the garden also! TFS Jan
