FROM CONCEPTION TO COMPLETION
The lighted portion of the lamp is wired after the sculpture is completed. Ozzy has an access door on the backside to facilitate the wiring and rare changing of light bulbs. Heat generated by the lights would generally be a problem, but with the advent of energy saving fluoresent bulbs and rope lighting, the sculpture remains amazingly cool even after long hours of operation. The tentacles will be lit by the rope lights running down each tentacle. Fuse blocks are situated inside the body and each tentacle as well as the body lights have their own fused circuitry. When lit, Ozzy has an ethereal burgundy glow. Ozzy can be displayed indoors or outdoors.
Ozzy is 3 feet tall and about 4 feet in circumference. He will weigh in at about 60 pounds, and have approximately 3000 individual pieces of glass.
Eyes for the leaded glass sculptures are purchased through a taxidermy supply house. The sculpted bodies of the animals are stylized interpretations of the artist, Buzz Baxter.
Buzz is one of only a handful of artists who specialize in fully three dimensional (fully enclosed) animal lamps of leaded stained glass.
