Rodger Thomas sees the light where few others do, literally. He has made it a hobby of repurposing vintage relics into quirky light fixtures. From telephones with light bulbs jutting out of the receiver to sprinklers with LEDs 'spraying' out instead of water, Rodger Thomas' creations are works of art.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Rodger Thomas has had his work featured on The Nate Berkus Show and Extreme Makeover Home Edition as well as in Mountain Living Magazine, Atlanta Magazine, Jezebel Magazine and Decatur Living Magazine. He also sells his playful lamps on Etsy through his shop BenclifDesigns. According to his Etsy page, Rodger Thomas' criteria for the objects used can be summarized with a saying, "Rust, dust and an aging crust!"
