Stella Starbot colander and olive oil tin lamp


Spend $100 and get 15% off your order

Made from a vintage olive oil tin and several pieces of old aluminum cookware, this upcycled lamp would be perfect for a kitchen island or counter, but with a little imagination it could work almost anywhere.

All outer parts have a fair bit of age, and the wear and tear that come with that. I think it adds to the charm, but you need to like patina rather than polish.

- Shade is 11 inches across.

Shipping from United States

In most cases, postage to the western U.S. will be lower than what's shown. Don't hesitate to contact me for accurate shipping costs to your location. In any case, if shipping is significantly lower than what you are charged, I will automatically refund the excess.

I am also happy to ship overseas or use expedited shipping. Please contact me to set the process in motion.

I insist on insurance. That cost is included in shipping.


Most of my pieces are made from vintage objects on the outside, with new functional parts inside. This means they will show signs of their age, which is part of their appeal, but the works will last for a long time. Unfortunately, photographs can unintentionally either disguise or exaggerate the wear on a piece. I encourage you to take this into consideration when making the decision to buy. If you find you aren't happy with your choice, you have 14 days in which to return it for a refund of the item price, not including shipping.


If you have an object you think would make a good lamp, I may be able to help. Use the link to request a custom order or drop me a note. Custom orders are subject to a 20% nonrefundable deposit, as noted above.
