Base & Shade are 30.5" tall, Shade is 8" diameter.

I got the main shaft of this white base at the Oakland Museum White Elephant sale. I picked it up, even though there was a small crack in it, which I broke off and re-glued, then covered in silver. This is a practice called "kintsukuroi," which is to repair with gold or silver and to realize that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. I really liked that piece of glass, it was a weird shape I hadn't worked with before, so I figured what the hey! Ceramic artist James Aarons made the foot for it and the all white shade just seemed the natural choice. This piece is really amazing, but a weirdo, and the weirdo it belongs to will love everything about it. (By the way, people don't use the term "weirdo" enough, in my opinion.)

All "Empire" lamps include new sockets, plugs and wiring.
