My Hummingbird Lamp was an experiment in testing the limits of a tiny 16-RPM motor. But more importantly, it was an exercise in collaboration. My friend Lori Andrews (who happens to be an employee at the local Woodcraft store) is an EXCELLENT decorative painter. I could have slapped some paint on the hummingbirds, but I knew Lori would knock them out of the park with her magic airbrush. And she did!
For the central lamp, I had the lame idea of a simple lampshade with some glued-on artificial flowers. When I shared that thought with Lori, she winced and said, “Why don’t you use a hummingbird feeder?”
DUH. And the rest is history.

It runs a little long, but hey, I LOVE the music!
