Mokume Gane light fixtures

You’ve probably figured out that I’m scrounging around the house for polymer clay fixtures to show you. The weather’s too nice to spend the evening web surfing.

Here are the lights from my copper bathroom. We made the tub surround from sheets of roofing copper…here’s the sink.

The little pendant fixtures from the lighting stores seemed overpriced so I made my own from translucent clay and copper leaf using Lindly’s “Haunani Gane” method. I first formed a thin cone of translucent, baked that as a base, added thin slices and baked again.

You have to be careful of the bulb wattage but with modern cool bulbs, heat isn’t a problem. These have been up for three years.
