Mick Whitcomb creates functional art by converting 19th century machines and instruments into light fixtures. By means of soldering, welding, and dry joinery, Mick pairs reproduction brass sockets, cotton wrapped cord, and "Edison bulbs" with found objects of the early electric time period. Each piece has been re-discovered, re-worked, and re-imagined by the artist to bring renewed function to innovative, yet obsolete, machines of the past.
