I plan on making this lamp as i have a basic background in wiring outlets lights and switches to code in the US. My maon concern after reading the comments section is that most lamps arent grounded and this one being all metal could be a problem.

My question is could this be grounded by running a 3prong cord from the outlet to the lamp and then screwing the ground wire into the pipe frame as the main concern is the frame getting hot due to a lose wire. Would this be enough or would it have to be pigtailed to each bulb socket as well?
