I think it’s great that you could put it up with just one little hole in the soffit.

One little hole compared to all you have done is nothing.

The insignificant c. 1/2" hole might be dressed with a little grommet of some sort; a black rubber one could be split to pass around the cord and suspension wire. I didn't find one online with a sufficiently narrow rim to please me . . .

The hole is more like 1/4”. And there is a tiny black rubber grommet, perhaps visible in this photo:

That is really neat looking, Peter. And, I love the shadow-play on the brick, too!

David- thanks!

That photo was taken at sunrise, thus the shadow...

Here's something: sconces at the T West theater. I wonder when these were drawn ? I found these photos online . . .

That TWest sconce is pretty tight up against the concrete ceiling. I wonder how you reach the bulb to change it.

Yes, it's true: Wikipedia has covered EVERYthing . . .

Perhaps the whole fixture lifts off its mounting bracket ?

I recall reading the sconces in the Caberet theater at TWest are versions of the sconces designed for Beth Sholom, which was designed 1956-57ish.

Sure enough: on page 358 of Taschen III is a Guerrero photo of an office in the synagogue showing three such sconces, quite similar to the theater fixtures.

The Lamberson basket and lamp are clearly related but by no means identical to these other fixtures.


Speaking of baskets, here is the suspended "light basket" found at the temple.
