Upcycled Steel Sunflower Sculpture

9 Nov


It’s been quite a while since we’ve made any new posts here, or on our facebook page. Working a 40 plus hour a week day job and balancing this business on the side can be overwhelming sometimes. We’ve been super busy trying to fill orders for coffee tables and some of our lights that there hasn’t been enough hours in the day to get out picking, work on new projects, etc. So I took some time last weekend to make a little sculpture thing for Jessica. I found an old John Deere farm implement at a flea market. Super heavy old steel. Some type of disc for plowing from what I can tell. Used the existing bolts and hardware that came with it to make an axle of sorts, and welded up a stand out of some old rusty plate steel and one of the leafsprings I had laying around. Turned out pretty good I think. Currently NFS.

Primitive Rustic Pendant Light Fixture

Rustic hanging light fixture made from and old plowing yoke. The upcycled weather beaten wooden farm implement serves as the centerpiece. Well worn wood in original condition with original patina’d iron hardware. The fully exposed wire shades are Victorian era lamp shade frames, that were originally covered in fabric. They were fitted with new UL listed nickel plated sockets which accept standard bulbs and wired with vintage twisted cloth covered wire. Vintage style quad filament, Victorian style bulbs are included.

Very unique piece and would make a perfect accent piece for over a distressed farm table in the dining room, kitchen island, over the sink, you name it.

Dimensions: 32″ long x 12″ wide (wire shades are 12″ in diameter)

Includes approximately 24″ of wire, suspends from ceiling and mounts with standard canopy (included with all hardware).

Note: While this piece installs easily as any storebought fixture would, it may require installation by a professional.

Available in our Etsy shop.
