Thank you, Paul Ringstrom, for alerting me to this. I had no idea this was coming out.

Well, I guess that's money spent.

Peter, what do you think of a lamp modeled -- by somebody -- on the Lamberson fireplace basket ?

I'm fine with it. I'm curious how and why they chose the fire basket design to turn into a lamp. I like it, though I don't personally have any need to purchase one. If anything, it inspires me to get the real steel thing built. Any welders out there in Wrightland?

I know a fine welder here in NJ...a bit far flung for Chicago or Oskaloosa though. In all seriousness, architect Walter Jennings in Fayetteville, AR , the son of Fay Jones' late firm partner Maurice Jennings may have connections to welders who assembled the fine and conceptually similar pieces for Jones et al.

Do you have drawings for the fire basket to share on Chat?

Thanks SDR! There is a section of the living room on a blueprint which also shows the basket. I'll photograph that soon.

For those who haven't seen this piece already, it should be explained that the pyramidal basket was to hang from chains (from a swinging bracket ?) and -- apparently -- contain or support sticks of firewood, in the very tall Lamberson fireplace. I think this concept is unique in all of Usonia, isn't it

It sure is. I still don't understand the exact function. Ash, embers, and coals would be falling out onto the floor of the hearth, bouncing off of the slats of the steel grate. It could be entertaining, though.

Beautiful!!
On their site it shows 240V, do you need to rewire it or were they able to wire it for you?

The wires could carry any voltage. The socket would be the issue ? Can't believe they would send a fixture here that couldn't be used . . .
