Hand-Blown Incandescent Sculpture Bulbs from Dylan Kehde Roelofs

Dezeen is showing off the work of Dylan Kehde Roelofs, an artist that makes these superlative hand-blown glass light bulbs as “a reaction against the soulless glow of low-energy bulbs.”

Prices range from around $200 to $1,300 and the “first filament replacement is free,” although the sculptor suspects you’ll get many thousands of hours out of a standard filament.

    This reminds me of the old Capsela mechanical construction kits. Man, those were awesome. They’re probably due for a revival any day now.

    They also remind me of the bongs a friend in college would build out of pilfered chemistry lab equipment. There was this one he called Gargantua…
