Animal X-Ray Lampshades

SPIKE VAIN'S ANIMAL X-RAY LAMPSHADES A Los Angeles veterinary technician hangs up her surgeon scrubs n stethoscope at night to switch-on the living room lights of animal lovers everywhere. . . . Spike Vain, founder/ designer of @XrayVisionDesigns, puts all other lamps in the shade, creating radiant lamps resplendent with covers - fashioned from animal X-rays. The 42 year-old, Ukraine-born artist had always had a fascination for X-rays, dating back to when, as a four year-old, she attended doctor's appointments with her grandparents. She was drawn to her unique medium when she stumbled upon a small shop showcasing medical arts-related items and vintage medical equipment - with X-rays displayed in the window. Her curiosity for digital images depicting the internal workings of living creatures - derived from electromagnetic radiation waves - was well and truly piqued. Spike began collecting X-rays, with those donated by her mother, grandmother, and friends - as well as those depicting her own back injury. Soon she produced her first X-ray lampshade - presented to a girlfriend. Now, Vain has constructed more than thirty lampshades - ninety per cent of her sales feature animal x-rays. Her choice of subject matter stems from a natural love of/ affinity towards animals that led to her current role as an oncology technician performing chemotherapy at a veterinary hospital located in Los Angeles. She also three Chihuahuas pets at home - two of them with three legs. Each @XrayVisionDesigns X-ray lamp takes approximately between two-to-four weeks to produce. Initially Spike would, individually, recycle and reconditioning all of them - stripping,sanding and priming them prior to affixing them shades. In the near future the plan is to weld on her own so eventually all the design and fabrication will be done solely by Spike. Vain is currently testing new techniques to facet and secure the X-rays to the frames along with her plans to weld and fabricate all the components.
