About me

WELCOME TO THE LIGHTING WORKS!

My love affair with old lamps began over 25 years ago when my father-in-law gave me a vintage airplane lamp stand that he had owned from the early 1950’s. I was fascinated with the design and imagination –an ordinary everyday essential that had been turned into a sleek work of art.

So over the next twenty years in my spare time I started rebuilding and rewiring and selling a few antique lamps. Sourcing parts from local flea markets and antique shops, where I soon became known as the “lamp man”…

Today I am retired and live in a very rural part of Prince Edward Island, Canada with my wife and our two Westie dogs, working in a workshop overlooking the Atlantic Ocean!

These days I spending most of my time creating one-of-a-kind works from reclaimed, vintage items found in old farms and warehouses… each lamp an original… each lamp special.

I hope you like them as much as I enjoy making them.

Thanks for looking, Glen

NOW..... WELCOME TO THE FUNKY ROBOT!

The Funky Robot began in 2021 as a side business created by my wife Hope. She has spent the last decade as my sidekick - helping me source antiques and vintage pieces in flea markets and antique shops across North America.

Looking for gears and gauges became too boring - but she loved the thrill of the hunt.

Hope's background in owning and operating a large gift store and jewelry design led to creating these wonderful characters!

We both invite you to take a close look... they are fun, funky and will certainly make you smile!
