I designed this for a Robert Wilson party held at DeKoonings’ studio in East Hampton. It’s a hand holding a flashlight into an umbrella. It’s hung by thin wire between trees or whatever to make them appear to float. At the party they floated above chairs.

These are vintage schoolhouse milk glass globes that I put on pewter plates and wire with regular bulbs and dimmers. They make great table lamps, and accent lights outdoors around patios or even in the woods with battery powered lights.
The dog is a Bull terrier , made by Hubley. There are lots of repros of these, but you can tell from the red tongue and eyes this is an original. The cat is just cool.
This is a three headed metal doll head mold. It’s mounted on a caster that spins, so the three heads can be seen. The caster is covered in lead and lead numbers used to mark old windows. The top base is teak and the bottom is an old wood box lid.
Ok, sanded , stained and waxed. The metal head was even waxed. I like it cleaned up and a tiny shine on it , just adds a little life to it. The oval frame was cleaned up, too. The finger hole was sanded and finished nicer also. I love that this is a Madame Alexander doll head, too. Just makes it more valuable.
