Early last fall I set aside some time to develop a few new designs for 2011 and the design for this Cyclone lamp is one that I kept thinking about. Not surprisingly it is my first new piece for 2011. About four months passed between the time that I drew the first sketch of what would become the cyclone and the time that I actually began working on it. As the time passed and the vision of the final piece became clearer in my mind, I became increasingly excited.
One of the things that I really like about this design is that it seems to change dramatically depending on the angle at which you view it. From some angles it appears to spiral either upwards or downwards and yet from others it seems to spin from both end towards the center. A top down view presents the image of the classic spirograph.
