Just got the final go ahead for a package of lamps destined for a new hotel in York, England. Full steam ahead!
We’re working on something big. Here’s a little teaser with some of the cut bottles.
Just finished another recycled bottle candle hurricane lamp that’s great for weddings and wedding centerpieces. The three bottles are resting on hand painted glass tile. We can paint the tiles to coordinate with your decor.
The client that ordered 10 of these fixtures for his custom home in Glendora, CA said I’m welcome to stop by an check out the room after everything is put in. I rarely get to see the finished room, as most of my business is via my website. So, this will be special treat. Photos to follow.
And, who doesn’t love skull lamps!
Very pleased with the installation of this package of 3 fixtures for a house upgrade just north of Seattle. We found this awesome tree branch on the property – a very happy coincidence.
Moving on to the next room. We found this awesome slice of Eucalyptus that we had finished and sealed in a plastic, in order to preserve the “living edge” of bark.
And then we wrapped it up with this whimsical chandelier over the stairs.
Sometimes, it’s just downright crazy around here. A customer brought in two of these lamps and said he needed something to hang over an old secretary he has in his 100 year old house. Why not a couple of railroad lanterns? Too bad they were battery operated and corroded beyond belief. We took them apart and reconditioned the insides with all new wiring and lightbulbs. Now, these wall sconces will shine indefinitely, no batteries necessary.
That’s right. Finished up the first of three chandeliers to be installed in a house north of Seattle, in a couple of weeks.
This one was a quick build in our Claremont, California shop, to be shipped up ahead of time.
The other two chandeliers will be assembles on site. Good times!
Sometimes, we just can’t believe that these works of art are simply designed for a one time use before being promptly discarded in the recycle bin. Some of our favorite bottles, the St Germain, will be on their way to MA as a part of 5 units for a new restaurant.
Paid a visit to the home of a client just north of Seattle. Started with a bit of R&R via some stunning walking trails.
We then took a drive to the small town of Duvall, where a stunning array of live edge lumber awaited. We chose a beautiful 6’ piece for the dining room chandelier that will be constructed on site.
And, finally, the main event. We took a limb from this lovely lakeside tree and we’ll be using it to fashion an amazing chandelier for the living room.
Now, we’re hard at work back at the Claremont California Moonshine Lamp workshop for construction of all the parts and pieces. Stay tuned!
That’s right. There’s a new cafe opening up in The Kingdom Of Bahrain, and I’ve been asked to come up with some non-alcoholic bottles for a selection of wall sconces that will adorn the walls of this new eatery. Believe it or not, that’s kind of a tall order. Liquor and perfume bottles are the coolest around, and it’s really hard to find anything in between that’s interesting. But, as they say, where there’s a will, there’s a way. Here are a few of the selections that are under consideration by the designers.
