i’m jealous of jeff risinger & mark winn II

Obviously I’m going to need all of these lamps {aka Tupperlights}. I am totally dating myself by getting excited about this, but I can remember my mom hosting Tupperware parties, and then making jello-molds with bits of fruit and tiny marshmallows… do people still do either of those things? Well, not Jeff Risinger and Mark Winn II. From their studio in Ypsilanti, Michigan, they take these outdated Tupperware containers and turn them into updated, stylish, warm & glowy light fixtures for your home… jello not included.

{You can buy any of these lamps today at their Etsy store, Boots n’ Gus.}

    Nice!

    You might also be jealous of Australian sculptor Donna Marcus, she makes her work from metal cake tins, colanders, tea pots and so on.
