In the early days of the lighting industry, when shades were diligently handcrafted from the highest quality materials, lights were intended as lifelong features of a setting. Porcelain enamel, an early hallmark of the industry, was used as an extra layer of protection to keep these lights performing, even in taxing industrial and agricultural settings. With the advent of cheaper materials and manufacturing techniques, most lighting fixtures lost this initial durability.
Motivated by a desire to return to the original way of doing things, our lights are manufactured with skill and artistry. In our Florida-based facility, flat pieces of commercial grade metal are spun on a lathe and are carefully manipulated and sculpted until they assume the correct shape. To fully replicate the quality found in vintage lights, a collection of these handcrafted shades are coated in porcelain. This meticulous process ingrains a tangible sense of dependability and integrity directly into each light we produce.
