We bring an interesting group of individual talents together to make our lamps. Bart is all technical with a talent for straight lines and complicated wiring. He has been a builder and a tinkerer since he was a little kid (not that he ever grew up) his claim to fame is he can take anything apart and put it back together and it still works. Lynne on the other hand has a creative vision that brings fun and whimsy to everything she touches. Together we make brilliant lights from anything we can get our hands on.

Some of our favorite things to work with are:

old lamps
old clocks
wooden boxes,
old motors and gears,
old phones,
old metal 'bits and bobs'
vintage toys,
vintage tools,
and any other interesting things we can re envision





We search out vintage parts at auctions, estate sales, junk shops and even friend's basements and attics to find interesting stuff we can re purpose into beautiful one of a kind lamps and clocks.
