Cory Barkman is an artist who creates lamps out of objects he finds in junkyards and scrap yards. His lamps are all one-of-a-kind, combining random odds and ends to create quirky and cool lighting.

Some of you might call Cory Barkman’s lamps steampunk, but I prefer the term upcycled. These lamps may be made out of scrap metal, but that doesn’t mean that they sell for spare change. Cory Barkman’s lamps sell for anywhere between $1,000 and $25,000. Better start saving now.
