I noticed the threads on the light bulb holder.

Can something be bought that will make the light shine downward?

As it is now, the light is too bright and wasted when it goes in every direction.



You need a shade with what is called a "Threaded-UNO fitter"

Like this one:

That would work. Thanks for finding the name of what fits the threaded part.
:-)

But at $29, as trader_4 said, it would be cheaper to get another light fixture.


Wow. Rather than "Handcrafted by experienced designers", I'd rather
have one machine-made by inexperienced designers. Might be cheaper.

these have been rare my whole life, but they must be very rare to charge
so much. And they're just lamp shades. Nothing about them
specifically makes the light shine downward.

maybe the OP could make a collar out of sheet metal, like dogs have to
wear sometimes.
