I’m not going to pretend that I had a lot of fun sitting around the house for the days without power as Hurricane Isaac slowly tore its way through New Orleans, but at least I did something productive. I’ve been asked by several people if I intended to make mason jar lights in clusters, and indeed I’ve wanted too but just haven’t gotten around to it. Well, thanks to the time my hurri-cation afforded me, here is a five jar light which is made for direct wire (not plug-in). Normally, all the jars would be lit but I ran out of Edison bulbs, so that is why only three of the jars are lit in the pics. I like to use vintage jars as much as I can since they have more variety and character, so this light has old Atlas, Kerr, and Ball jar brands, two blue and three clear. And in case anyone is thinking it, I am aware of the irony of making light fixtures during a time when i had no electricity!
