Hello, Yes a clay lamp is actually an assignment for my senior pottery
students. Usually they start with a cylinder formed around a cardboard form.
The only requirement is to close the top to fit a metal cap that I purchase
at a local ceramic supply store and a hole on the side to allow the wire to
come through at the bottom. from there their imagination comes forth..They
have made lighthouses, palm trees, houses, people parts, and much more. Talk
to people at a ceramic or light business. Wiring a lamp is really simple and
the kids are always so excited when we plug in and it works!!
