Pour lighting

This is a cute one from Evan.

He says, “The lamp is made from an Ikea PS Vallo watering can and an Ikea Vedum lamp, which consists of a cluster of fiber optic cords lit by LED lights at their base. I threaded the fiber optics through the spout of the watering can so it looks like the light is pouring out of the can.”

The Vedum appears to be discontinued. Guess not that many people are fans of 70-ish lighting. But it seems to have redeemed itself in the mouth of the Vallo.
