Roadside sign for the ice cream joint. That place has been in business 56 years and is something of a local icon. Wouldn't be surprised if the sign was original to the place.

Better late than never. I thought I'd post some photos of stuff I've made. All photos are 100% photoshop-free.

This is a photo of a 1 liter glass bulb that has been equipped with electrodes and then filled with neon. In this instance, the electrodes are irrelevant. The bulb is being illuminated by the radiation from a 600 watt microwave oven magnetron. The antenna is just below the bulb. The bulb really is that bright - almost too painful to look at. Yes, my hand gets quite warm :-)

neon-john.comView Full Size


Here is the same bulb being illuminated conventionally, with about 5,000 volts and 03 milliamps

neon-john.comView Full Size


Still on the bulb theme, here are two very interesting bulbs. The bulb on the left has been washed on the inside with a very thin coating of mixed red and green phosphor and then filled with argon and mercury. The bulb on the right is filled with neon. Both bulbs are being driven with high voltage radio frequency current via a single electrode on each. The outline of my hand is caused by the current flowing through the glass capacitively and then through my fingers.

I know that I'm only supposed to do three so this 'un's for fun. I didn't make this sign but photographed it along Hwy 1 in Florida. Gorgeous neon work.
