I really like everything about The Fossil Lamp by Neil Conley. The lamp was blown in the same manor as laboratory glass production. I can appreciate the the concept and execution of this piece of art as well.

Intended as living museum piece, the lamp is a preservation of Thomas Edison’s first truly reliable filament bulb, invented circa 1880. Resembling a fossil preserved in amber, the lamp demonstrates the transition of the filament from an object of fundamental functionality, to its place today as an icon of design heritage. A representation of the beauty of innovation, the bulb is now retired to a life behind glass, as a true industrial fossil.
