For my Upcycle project, I am choosing to build a 3-bulb lamp using an upcycled liquor bottle. I am hoping to imitate flowers in a vase with my creation, embracing the aesthetic of Electrical appliances imitating natures. The “flowers” will be the bulbs of the lamp, using upcycled stained glass to imitate petals. While I have not found lightbulbs yet, I will likely use Edison bulbs, allowing me to lean into the industrial feel. Thus, I hope to synthesize motifs from both nature and industry.
