    Hello Jeffrey, I see you noticed my First Cav Flag. I was in the 1/77th Air Cav in Nam in 1970 and thank you for your service. :D

    Now that I am moving soon, I need to sell all these lamps so I put some of them on Etsy. I will list the rest of them as soon as I get time as it is a little of a pain to list them there as you need to weigh them, fill out a big form and describe the thing. I do want to keep 2 of the fish though. I can't part with this porcupine fish and I will be building more of them a little different soon I hope.

    I don't know if you do this just for yaself but there is a lot of money to be made in Steam punk vaporizers ...Just look them up...you can buy all the guts and even digital controllers ...you just make the casing ...Just a thought :)

    This is the gallery I am bringing the pieces to tomorrow. They want me to bring all the pieces in. They have 3 galleries in Midtown Manhattan, Sarasota Florida and Stockbridge Mass.

    An American Craftsman Galleries

    All my Steampunk pieces sold today to an art gallery in Manhattan except for two fish that I wanted to keep for myself. I am very happy that I don't have to move them to my new home and I can start building new ones as now I have an outlet and the gallery will take whatever I make. A couple of pieces almost sold as I was bringing them into the gallery as two people wanted them even before they priced them so I am happier than my wildest dreams. Well, maybe not my wildest dreams as that would need a flounder, bowling pin, left rear tire from a 1957 Studebaker and a piece of meat loaf from Lady GaGa's dress. :rolleyes:

    Here is my wife with one of my pieces on the counter in the Gallery. She is my spokesmodel. :D

    Grats! BAsed on the fact that they have a lot of pieces that have time to be photographed and put up on a website to sit for a while, I'm guesssing your stuff is a goldmine, and rightly so.
    Hoping you got a good price, especially as its in the city.
    Also, now that you sold out in 24 hours, and I'm seeing pieces on the site that have been there for a bit, make sure you get paid properly.
    HAte to see you sell pieces to them for a few hundred only to find out they're selling for a few thousand.
    You're on percentage I hope (and, if so, I hope its a lot more percentage than the gallery)?

    I almost finished the 3 lights for over the Island in my new Island kitchen. These are wine barrel hoop lights.
    This is one of them I built for a few bucks.

    This is one that sells for $120.00
    I will start on my wine barrel hoop dining room light.

    I am working on 3 projects at once, which is a mistake. I have two lamps and a SteamPunk Airship that I am kind of excited about because I never built one before.
    That phone box with the brass bells will be a lamp. I ordered the ear piece and when you lift the ear piece, the light will come on. The crank on the right will dim it. I have not decided what to do with the other vintage box yet.

    Fantastic. Sorta reminds me of the old Buck Rodgers serial ships with the sputtering spark engines that sounded like chainsaws.

    Those Buck Rogers ships had a cigarette in the back that made the smoke. Very high tech for the time.
