With all the craziness that is Pokemon Go happening around me, I was not at all surprised when I started getting requests for a Pokemon inspired Lamp. After revisiting my own younger years engrossed in pokemon fever, I couldn't deny the fun of making just such a lamp.
The First Panel is for the one and only Pikachu. In it I tried to cut out a silhouette of the 2nd generation Raichu but with the ever loved Pikachu standing tall within the image. This way you can see both evolutions within the one image. I like the outcome so much that I tried to replicate it in the remaining panels.
After Pikachu I couldn't forget Squirtle. With this one I was able to find 3 generations of Pokemon evolution into the one image. The smallest center image is the first generation Squirtle cut out of the second generation Wartortle who stands within a space shaped like the 3rd generation Blastoise.
Next I went with Charmander. Again I was able to use all three generations. ranging from Charmander, to Charmeleon all the way to the fierce Charizard!
I went back and forth on the last panel but ended up going with Mew, I went with Mew because as far as I know it is the only Pokemon that doesn't evolve into Mewtwo but they are related and work together as a powerful duo.
For the top of the Lamp I went back to the show of a few years back and used a Poke Ball as the frame to show Both Pikachu and Ash facing each other ready for battle.
Please understand that each lamp is custom made, so the wood grains or shade will vary from the picture. But I do work to make sure each side matches on any individual lamp. Each Lamp is approximately 6” on a side and 12” tall. Each comes with a 6’ cord with an inline switch. The socket is for a regular bulb (not included). The wire is rated to 75 watts but to avoid heat buildup only high efficiency CFL or LED bulbs around 5 watts (60+ Watt equivalent) should be used. The wood is 5mm pine or sandalwood ply with a rice paper backing to provide for a wonderful contrast. The wood ships unfinished to allow the natural grain to shine, But you can stain or otherwise finish the wood relatively easily to your liking. I designed them so that once the panels are slid into the base the base cannot be removed, but for bulb changing the top can be pulled off relatively easily. Each Lamp can be made and shipped usually within three days to a week of ordering. But that time really depends on how many orders I am working on. I ship using USPS priority with the US...I can ship internationally for special requests but the shipping rate will depend on the details.
The entire Lamp is designed to be flat packed for ease of shipping but is simple to assemble.
