Following along with the aesthetic I touched on in my previous blog post (LINK GOES HERE), I decided to build a table lamp, using a bottle as the base. The inspiration for this design stems from a variety of different sources, some of which are pictured below.

The images below show one of the main materials I’m currently planning to use in this project: the bottle.

There are so many cool bottles used for alcoholic beverages, but they’re so often just thrown away or recycled. These beautiful glass sculptures are basically pieces of art used to contain liquid, so why not use them to create light instead?
I’m not completely sure how I’m going to implement the light, as there are loads of different ways to do it, but I think the aesthetic I’m going for is to create a warm and cozy atmosphere, something rustic and comfortably lit.
