Pill Lights

I'm always working on light designs. Always. Ask my wife - she is a little tired of finding parts all over the house. What can I say, I never shut my brain off....

I've been developing this pill shape for a while which was developed because of the need to use mostly stock parts but have the result of custom look, to help reduce startup costs. I'm really happy with it so far and currently prototyping several pieces. I've tooled for the custom sized hemisphere with a local spinner and piecing things together now. Here is a preview of what I'm working on.

One of my personal favorite aspects of this design is the glass shade. I'm treating it a little differently by frosting the inside of the glass instead of the outside. This allows the shade to have the glow effect (especially with lower watt bulbs) yet still have a high gloss finish on the outside with reflections. All about the details.
