Lamp Bike

Ride Your Bike And Make a Lamp (!?)


An unusual lamp  created by Mark Colliass uses a unique method to create the actual lampshade.  You can’t tell by looking at it, but the lampshade was created while riding on a bike.

The process involves pouring resin, called Jesminite, into side areas of the mold which is located on the side of the bike. As you ride the bike, the force of riding will push the resin out of the storage area and into the mold, forming a unique bowl shape.  It takes about 40 minutes to make the lamp, and for the mold to set. Who knew you could do a recreation activity and create a design at once?  You can read updates about the project on @tincanboy.
