My name is Gerry Conlon and my company is "Steampunkpro."
I have been making steampunk lamps for three years from my garage and basement in Williston, Vt.
I use the black iron pipe as well as brass, chrome and galvanized metal in the lamps. I incorporate many different, funky parts that I get from auto mechanics, reuse stores and wherever else I can find them. Naturally, I buy from the internet as well.
You'll find gauges and gears and on/off switches made from sillcock knobs that usually are used turn water spigots outside your home on and off.
I sell my lamps online as well as at area shows.
