Old salt lamp

Materials: Regolit, fishing rod

Description: Usually Regolit is a lamp for ceilings. Conversely I attached it at a fishing rod, using its own electric cable as the fishing line, to create the effect of a beautiful marine lamp.

I fixed the fishing rod to the ceiling using a little nail and a piece of wire, then I fixed it to the wall using an hanging nail and a champagne cap wire. Note that it is strictly important to put a visible cable from the wall to the middle of the fishing rod: It is useless at all as weight holder, but it is fundamental for human eye, without it you will not see a fishing rod bringing a lamp but a ceiling bringing a lamp and a fishing rod, incredible but true!!!!
