Pickles… usually nothing more than a sandwich or burger enhancer, is actually an excellent conductor of electricity. Who knew?
So, it was only a matter of time before somebody turned several pickles into a viable light source. That somebody are food artists, Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, who brings us the Gherkin Chandelier.
Taking advantage of the pickles’ high acidity and translucence, Bompas and Parr sent some electric current through them, turning the pickles into little oblong light bulbs.
The result… a chandelier worthy to hang over any dining room table. As long as you don’t mind minimal light and the smell of burning gherkins.
