unhealthy lamp

i started to make this ashtray lamp by connecting the ground end from the digital to the metal napkin holder/encasement.  i then attached the positive from number 9 to the edge of an aluminum tea-candle case, suspended above the metal napkin case by the tension of the wire. photo-204.jpg When one ashes into the case, it becomes a bit heavier each time, photo-205.jpguntil, just before it is full, it is heavy enough to touch down and make contact with the napkin case, completing the circuit, lighting the leds, and letting you know you’d better empty it.photo-206.jpg
