Skeleton Table Lamp by Rajala Skeleton Table Lamp by Rajala
I went through my locker in school and found a bunch of stainless steel fingers I had abandoned while making my coat rack. As some of you may know, stainless steel especially in bigger parts is damn hard to forge so some of the fingers didn't come out as I had hoped.

But now as I checked them I realized that there were enough good fingers for one hand. So with nothing better to do I reworked them and made some new parts and borrowed a little piece of deer skin from a friend and all of a sudden I had a nice new lamp on my table.

I am glad you put the Deer skin to good use. Most people when huting or killing animals waste too much. I admire the fact, although I do not entirely justify or agree with the act of killing animals, that it was not wasted and put to artistic use!

Your idea for a shade on a lamp is quite new to me. This looks flashy.

I'm not sure but I think the deer was a roadkill. The friend from whom I borrowed the skin is studying ancient artisan crafts in my school. For example, the students on that line use cow brains for tanning the hides. I respect how they try to use every possible part of a carcass in some way.

They use the crevices of the brain off a cow to make a hide? Hell, that is interesting. Cirrect me if I misunderstood it. If not, that's intriguing!

The brain is mainly fat and that's what they use so it's quite convenient.

Absolutely wonderful. It's so very odd in it's wondrous appeal.
Do you sell your work by any chance?
