This is a free form base, band sawn and roughly shaped to hold that long thing. That long thing is a Magic Wand, in acrylic, called CRYSTAL WAND #3, 2” DIA x 43” LONG with a natural crystal point. It is probalby the toughest thing to photograph I’ve ever attempted. I gave up. Photo by Arsene Bacquet against a starry background.

How’d you make that!! If you add LEDs that would be absolutely incredible.. not that is isn’t amazing just as acrylic. :) NICE!

In my ‘Tree of Wands’ (that incorporated 60 wands, will post as a project soon) I had two long wands with acrylic shafts. I put a red laser in one. The laser was in the handle and was turned on by pressing one of the jewels in the handle (a cirlce of CZs with one ruby, the on switch). The very neat thing is that it didn’t evidence itself in the clear acrylic, which was probably 24” long. But when it hit the back side of the natural crystal tip it exploded beams all over…and the crystal kind of glowed. Irving Lipton, the collector that commisioned the TREE OF WANDS was so entranced by that feature he’d kill all the lights in his gallery to amaze and mystify his guests with the wand. Great press for me!
