En”lightened” Organic Art

Incandescent bulbs may be a thing of the past by 2012 due to a congressional mandate, and compact flourescents are poised to replace them.  One artist however, is making sure that all those old incandescent bulbs aren’t just forgotten and thrown in the trash though.

SteamedGlass by Tim Witteveen, breathes new life into incandescent bulbs. Perhaps one of the most elaborate creations from this artist is “Professor Alexander’s Botanical Vasculum”  You simply must visit the shop to read Tim’s creative (and historic!) description of this organic work of art.  It’s an incredibly detailed work with an adjustable magnifying glass, and even a solar powered LED bulb.

Professor Alexander’s Botanical Vasculum, $150

I am completely charmed by these unique works of art!  While they are completely stunning, even more wonderful is the fact that Tim has taken recycled art to another level, and also incoporates actual living organic material inside!
