Description: This pair of small wall hung lamps was the result of a request to create a piece to show at a children's furniture show. Possibly an odd pair to make and show. I think they are outside of the realm of what people think of for kid's furniture. But I felt that kids — who really don't care about furniture...unless it is something out of the ordinary — would get this. These two lamps are tactile, hammered by hand out of copper, and with lights that go on when you touch the "eggs". Behind each egg, is a small compartment to hide something. Made in 1999, I think they are even more relevant today.
