I have been trying to firm up my modeling skills by creating basic objects from a single mesh object like a cube or sphere. This is a basic lamp that I modeled from a single sphere. I did cheat just a little by duplicating the base of the lamp and using it to create the shade but I ultimately joined the two together to once more make a single object. I am still very new to using blender and am thoroughly enjoying the process. I have learned much from the work that all of you are doing on this site. This blend has a single glass lamp, lighting and a basic suround to show that the lamp is actually glass. The texture that I used on the shade is from cgtextures.com. If its useful for you please use it. If you do you don't have to give credit but let me know if it is something that you like so that I know that I am on the right track with using blender. Concordantly if you have any suggestions on how this can be made easier please let me know.
