I don't have process photos for this piece.  It was made a couple years back.The hardest aspect of this project is trying not to demolish the porcelain while drilling through it.  Broke a few.  PATIENCE while drilling porcelain.  It is VERY hard compared to bisque or china, or hand thrown pottery.

Inspiration for this came from none other than one of my Favorite stores, Anthropologie. Must give credit where credit is due!

The sell a similar lamp for $198.  Mine cost about $30 and a spot of time.

All pieces are reclaimed, except the socket.  White metal lamp parts alternate between the pottery to give the piece more texture.
