Our Very First Light Fixture

*Boy and I kick around the idea of designing lots of things aside from books and buildings—light fixtures are one such thing. Last week we entered our firm's annual Pumpkin Carving Contest with the expressed intent to do something "cool." Every designer knows that feeling, the desire to come up with something that will blow everyone else away, something that will stand out and really shine.

Mission accomplished. Amidst the other template pumpkins (and weird, nautical concept pieces), our little, orange light fixture shone brighter than all—even inside a lit room. After a squabble about it being electrically illuminated (which Martha encourages), we won first place. The only way it could have been better is if we had actually suspended it.

The making-of pictures to follow...
