Artist Turns Junk Into $25,000 Lamps

Cory Barkman used “found objects” to create these artistic lights that will set you back between $1,200 and $25,000.


I search for interesting objects, primarily water, gas, air, and mechanical parts found at the scrap yard. They appeal almost immediately to me as I envision them as potential components. In my shop I organise these treasures. They become a cache of resources and inspiration. A few key objects will trigger a design concept, although sometimes all it takes is one. From there I begin to consider the pieces to fill out the lamp.

Great… after you drop a that huge chunk of change, you can use it to illuminate your overdraft notices.
