Neon Sculptures feature multi-colored, hand blown neon tubing. The neon sculpture plugs into a black base, which fully houses all the electronics. The base has an on and off switch, and can be adapted to sit on a shelf or hang on a wall. Neonetics neon sculptures have a warm mesmerizing glow, and are powered by solid state transformers, which operate silently and more efficiently than incandescent bulbs. All you do is plug it in - no special wiring required.
