Clarinet lamp

clarinet lamp 2 crane away rebecca howson

This lamp was the output of a one week project called ‘Play All Day’ at the University of the Creative Arts Canterbury. The brief was to re-imagine a childhood toy. I re-purposed my old clarinet into a steampunk styled lamp. The base is solid turned oak and has been fitted with an Edison squirrel cage bulb. The lamp has been finished with a retro in-line dimmer switch.

Materials used:

  • Oak

  • Clarinet


  • Wood turning
