Marble Table Lamp

By Mayank Sharma. Posted

Since marbles are made of glass, you can use the very transparent ones to create a lamp, allowing the light and colour to shine through.

Artenharia have created a base with a 32×32 cm piece of wood and used a large popcorn bucket to trace a circle that’s about 18 cm in diameter, shown in the video above.

Their previous video, below, shows how to mount the socket for the lamp onto this wooden base. When the lamp socket has been mounted, prepare small balls of epoxy, and use them to stick the marbles on the pencilled circle.

After laying one row, use two balls of epoxy to stick the second row of marbles on top of the previous one. Continue the process until you’ve created eight rows, and you’re done.
