Beautiful Minds
In honor of Sir Joseph Swan (1828-1914) and Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931), the two men, which changed the way people live in homes around the world, inventing the incandescent light bulb. A bit of history: 'English Sir Joseph Wilson Swan in 1878 in Great Britain, patented the first light bulb ever made, but this, it proved impractical. The combustion system, was a thick filament carbon emitting gas, and very quickly, soot covered the interior of the bulb. Was then, the American Thomas Alva Edison, who in 1879 patented a high-strength thin filament, which did not emit gases. Swan also incorporated this improvement in his bulb, but was sued by Edison for patent infringement. In the end, common sense prevailed, Swan and Edison agreed, and in 1880, they created the Edison & Swan United Light Company. ..... and now light!

Absolutley love it, the angled roof is fantastic, do those hinges hold it okay, or is it hanging by a thread? Very cool.

Quoting Pedro Resendes A fantastic creation!

Quoting Liam Covey Your work is always stunningly beautiful. It's almost Gothic, to me. What sources do you take inspiration from? I see a lot of Burtonesque influences, perhaps why I like it so much.
Thanks a lot Liam,The inspiration comes from the transparent lids. I do not know exactly how, but for a long time I wanted to create a laboratory in 1800, and lids made ​​me think of a light bulb, so I'm aware of who had created the light bulb, and so, here's the result. The 'idea of ​​the true light, and the video is coming after the project was finished. The gargoyle on the roof, I had made ​​it 6 months ago, and had not yet found a setting in which to place it, so I thought that this could be there. Thank you very much for your interest my friend. Sorry for my English! ;)
