Though the work expresses ingenuity construction and painted faux wood grain, it fails to provide light or fool the eye. The wheel is an easy-to-grasp - though awkward - light switch. The wall that separates the operating side and the lit side of the work stands 3 feet wide and 5 foot 9 inches tall, blocking the lamp’s light and decorative quality.
