A creepy, long-vacant old house in the neighborhood is finally being torn down. Good riddance, 'cuz the kids say the place is haunted. Found this old lamp in the dumpster and brought it home. Seems to work OK, but it's badly tarnished and dingy-looking. Think I'll polish it later.

beautiful job, wonder if a good genie will pop out when you polish it.

Very nice job on the lamp Henry. That is a terrific flame coming off the wick.

Is the lamp mostly lofted objects?

Better pay heed to Andy's comment - you know how genie has been sneaking around your place these days.

Thanks, Don. This was a fun project. (I probably would have abandoned it, otherwise.)

The "body" of the lamp and the "pedestal" are lofts. The handle and the trim pieces are Rail Sweeps. Chain was created as a Pattern on Curve, using a pair of Rail Sweeps as the source graphic.

Flame is a Spin, exploded and rescaled somewhat. Pattern is "Wrapped filtered image," using a custom-made Gradient created in Paint Shop Pro to achieve the graduated color. Reflectance is "Plastic," with a very high Ambient factor. Transparency is "Glow"; Wrapping is "Cylindrical." I assigned a Luminance to it, also.

That's very authentic lamp Henry impressive.Now you if can get the Genie to come out of the lamp and grant three wishes that would be a plus. :)

I like it very much. It produce around itself some mysterious mood. It looks like Aladdin's lamp.

I was wondering why a flame go upwards: http://www.sciencelet.com/2013/08/why-do-flames-burn-upwards.html

Well, yeah, but in most cases "up" is the only direction available.
