It Will Be Mine: Scrap Metal Deep-Sea Angler Fish Lamp

September 14, 2012


This is a giant scrap metal lamp made to look like an angler fish by artist and Etsy seller Justin LaDoux. He's selling it for $8,000. For reference, I paid $6 for my last lamp from the thrift store and supplied my own lampshade. It's a popcorn bucket. When the bulb gets hot it smells like the movies!

This Deep Sea Angler Fish is made with recycled objects and energy efficient lighting. It stands 5 feet tall with base, 4 feet wide and 5 feet long. When you first look at the fish the light over the head is glowing bright, but when you walk in for a closer look the eyes and body light up using a motion censored light. With a closer look you will see that the fish is made with an assortment of thing like a bicycle, scoop shovel, knifes, and much more.

I really want it. Of course, there's no question I'll inevitably impale myself on it trying to turn the lights off before passing out drunk. LOL, turning the lights off before passing out. I will leave the refrigerator door open though.

Hit the jump for several more shots.





Thanks to my buddy Terry, who makes his own, far less impressive lamps. Okay I probably went too far with that one.
