renegade lamps

Designing a piece of furniture or decor or even a whole project usually starts with some butter paper and a pen.  It can take hours, even days getting the shape just right and perfect.  And, many pieces of paper end up in the bin in the process..but we keep going.

Here is a sketch of a lamp base we are in the process of designing and having manufactured by the blacksmiths. It's very exciting.  It is wonderful creating something.  Doesn't matter what it is we create.  It is so cool seeing something being brought to life.

Renegade lamp design in progress.  Shades underway.  New lamps ready for orders in about a week...
