Ceiling Fixture Pedestal Bowls

Ceiling Fixture Pedestal Bowls

Photo: Sherri Spear

I made these pedestal bowls from repurposed ceiling fixture and lamp parts.  Simply stack the parts you want to use on threaded lamp rods of the appropriate length and screw together using a brass end cap or pretty finial on the top and a nut on the bottom.  You could glue them together but I like to screw them together so that if someday I want to take them apart they have the potential of becoming something altogether new. 

Pattern or design used: My own design - Sherri Spear
