Lighting • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
I create unique lighting out of domestic hardwoods that is either turned on a lathe or paired with hand blown or artisan glass. The pendant lamps use vibrant exterior and interior dyes to compliment the palette of any space. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors and are made one at a time to the customers specifications.

The wood used is carefully selected for its grain and suitability for dye. Only sustainable domestic hardwoods are used. Once assembled, it is placed on a lathe and then turned with traditional carving tools. Custom non-toxic dyes highlight the beauty of the wood while adding a new aesthetic element not found in nature. It is finished with several coats varnish and polish to a beautiful luster.
