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.
Hot off the press, this 3-Light pendant chandelier is made from our favorite glass bottles and crowd pleasers, Crystal Head Vodka.
Hittin’ it hard inside as the rain and ice comes down on the outside. It’s definitely not as bad as some people are experiencing, but it’s an event for us here in California. We’ve got the jazz music playing as we put together two cool chandeliers for a new tequila bar in New York City.
Thanks to our friends at Integrity Sheet Metal for making these great steel welded rings for the lamps.
We always love a challenge, here at the Moonshine Lamp world headquarters in Claremont, California. A customer approached us to create a chandelier entirely from a stash of rescued items from a farmhouse demolition. We used a wine barrel strap, some chandelier chain, a collection of old mason jars and some other small glass jars with snap-on lids.
Given that this will serve as a DIY project for an upcoming issue of a popular magazine, we needed the construction and parts to be as simple as possible. We’ve never incorporated the use of candles into one of our chandeliers, but we thought it would be a neat addition, since those little jars were just calling out to be hung that way. Stay tuned for more chills and thrills.
