I found the glass parts for this lamp at a garage sale where the former owner said that they came from a trophy. I thought it was unusual because I'd never seen a trophy made with 1/4" thick glass. When I saw the pieces, I immediately imagined this table lamp which reminded me of the shape of a lava lamp.
All that these pieces required was some black walnut to create the base, the middle band and the tip. The wire uses a twisted pair cable covered with a brown woven nylon.
