Motschenbacher has a thing for antique ice-cream-maker buckets, and has amassed a collection of those as well. Here they were transformed into lamps and topped with vintage fabric-covered shades. "I love to turn all kinds of things into lamps," she says. "I can walk into my lamp shop carrying a strange object and because they know me so well, I just hand it to them and they know exactly what to do."
