A line of lighting made from bicycle parts has been in the works for the last little while. This is a piece that's on the design table.  It uses bike aluminum rims and strips of inner tube to make a interesting light to hang above your table. Any suggestions on how to make this bicycle art light go from good to great?
The 2nd picture is the light that was my inspiration.  Just after visiting a museum in Charlotte, NC I saw an interesting light in a down town restaurant.  Seeing items that could be remade using bicycle parts often happens to me.
