Yeah, yeah. I know it's not everyone's taste and it may look like evil tomato aliens and could frighten the sweet bejesus out of us all in the middle of the night...but, hey, it is seriously funky. I could make it work - a dramatic feature against an all white canvas.
This morning I emailed the store to get prices. My price guesstimate was around the $1500 range. Oh dear. How naive was that guess? Who knew?
This is the pendant version of the same light - it has 30 moveable arms

The email read:
"The 75cm one would be $3799, and the 150cm one is $4469.
The shades are all mouth blown glass and is available in red, dark violet and ceramic. The reason why the lights is called poppy is that the outer leaves will open aprox. 2 minutes after the luminaire is switched on."
I wanted to send a reply email to ask if the poppy light also produced premium grade opium.
It would want to.
Tricia Rose's advice of snapping a branch and propagating it was definitely a good one. I could start an illegal light cartel and charge $100 a branch.
Alas, another light is ruled out. And the search continues...
