Lamp Project

This project brief was to simply make a prototype lamp that had something unique about it. IN my case I decided to try and design and make one which could have an opening and closing function about the light to give some control over how much or little light was spreading out.

Initial ideas and concepts worked out using cardboard and other materials. Also working out the main mechanism.

Beginning to cut out the pieces of copper to work on. Copper and brass were the metals available at the time to buy. I made the piece using mainly solder. I also had to use some steel adhesive when it came to attaching the steel clamps I found.
