Artist's Description

An incandescent light bulb is an electric light which produces light with a filament wire heated to a high temperature by an electric current passing through it, until it glows. The hot filament is protected from oxidation with a glass or quartz bulb that is filled with inert gas or evacuated.
There is much debate on who invented the incandescent light, including claims from Alessandro Volta, Humphry Davy and Joseph Swan who all filed patents over the early part of the century with slight variations on the theme but the person who perfected it and made a practical light that burned for 1200 hours was of course Thomas Edison who invented the first commercially practical incandescent light in 1878.
Not an easy thing to photograph.
