For all those people that still think you should throw old kitchenware and appliances away, think again. Regulair visitors of upcycleDZINE know throwing away isn’t a solution and upcycling is the way to go. Nice examples are: TupperLight, Insight Light and Chef de Cuisine.
Jelly mould as unusual lamp
And now I want to add another one. This lovely ‘Vintage Metal Mould Light‘ designed by The Rework House. An Etsy store founded by Sarah, based in Newquay | United Kingdom. She was brought up with the rule that when something is broke you should try to to mend it. According to Sarah, figuring out how to mend it would result in a search of the house and this gave rise to unique and unusual solutions.
And in 2012 it resulted in The Rework House where I found this very elegant mould lamp. It’s a gorgeous vintage metal jelly mould reworked to become a single quirky and beautiful pendant light with a quality vintage style bulb holder. The metal jelly mould used for this lamp held approx 0.5 to 0.75 litres of jelly in its previous life.
