Bulldog Lamps

Hand Made Georgia Bulldog Lamp with 3D Hand Painted Head.

Hand Made Georgia Bulldog Lamp $80.00

Body is made from pine boards laminated together

The body consists of four 3/4″ boards laminated together to made a solid 3″ thick block.  Then I cut them out with my home made template to look like a cartoon Georgia Bulldog.  I also make them into piggy (doggy) banks instead of lamps if you desire.

Head is hand painted

I cut the head to resemble UGA’s depiction and hand paint all of the face and ears.  Then I glue the head to the body to give it a live 3D look.

The sweater and paws are painted

I paint the sweater red and the paws have black toe markings.  The “G” on the sweater and the “G” on the collar are laminated vinyl that I hand design and cut.

The lamp

I route the power cord through UGA and put a socket with a harp bracket on it so any shade can be used, no matter the type.  The cord is anchored to the bottom to eliminate it being pulled out.

Final finish

After all the painting and vinyl is completed, I then coat it with several coats of satin lacquer to preserve it for many years, and keep it from fading.
