Phoenixes

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been developing ideas around making a lamp that looks like a Phoenix. I finally began working on them about 6 months ago. I created one grown Phoenix, which I mounted to a wooden cigar box, and a baby version (Charlie), which sits in a nest of “ashes.” Both are lit by remote control LED fairy lights, and made from plastic bottles, bleeding art tissue, and Mod Podge, sealed with acrylic. Some clay/paper clay was used here and there, and the Mama Phoenix (Lilith) has chopsticks for legs!

I’m working on some other baby Phoenix lamps, possibly to sell, so stay tuned! I’ve got a second baby Phoenix almost finished!
