STOOL SAMPLE #2

The newest stool sample is even sleeker than the first and more contemporary. The butt plug is shiny black. I wanted to avoid using gold fixtures. I thought chrome finishes would make it look more contemporary. A few lessons had been learned while constructing the first “Stool Sample.” I wanted the shaft to be shorter than the one before it; looking more like a table lamp. After completion of #2, I plan on cutting down the shaft or replacing it for a shorter version with the original sample. Aesthetically it looks much better.
I found a table lamp at a local store. It had a red glass encasement around the shaft including chrome fixtures that were about the right size. After purchasing it, I smashed the lamp to access to inner parts. The same process regarding the drilling and placing the parts within it was relatively the same as it was when constructing the original “Stool Sample.” This time it moved a lot quicker. After dissecting the smashed lamp to combine it with the butt plug, I tried various fittings, and differing heights, taking it apart and putting it back together. Adjusting the base and finally deciding to attach it to the base of the butt plug. It is round and chrome, it acts as housing for the cord of the plug. The shaft encases the cord and it comes out of the top of the butt plug just a few inches. In order to jazz it up a bit I employed a chrome spacer, another part attained from the smashed lamp. This piece runs between the top of the butt plug and the electrical housing for the light bulb. It is so sleek. It needed the perfect lampshade. I had seen it before when I was constructing the original “Stool Sample.” It is a barrel shape, similar to the shape of the first one. It is black with a white Ben Day dot pattern all the covering the shade. The light illuminates out from the dots. It looks just like a nice lamp…except these two may be the only that are antibacterial. Making art and stopping the spread of germs.
