I took the Gioia light fixture and made it even simpler. The wires are in each tube and with the single loop bulb it’s a clean ring of light.
The Bridge Light came from the inspiration of local bay area bridges. Very functional joints and attachment points with a playful swirl of lights in the center. this light is 36″ wide.
I.P. Frink made lights at the dawn of the electrical age. I love this era of functionality and design. This light makes a wonderful focal point of light in the room and the reflected patterns from the bulbs are over the top beautiful. The patterns in these pictures are from changing only the center bulb!
The Spider light fixture came out of my fascination of vintage industrial lighting. I have a 1920′s single arm version of this over my lathe in the shop and I thought wouldn’t be wonderful if each person setting at the dinning table could adjust the lighting to suit their needs. Here is where that thought took me. Lighting for 8.
This light is for a private home with very tall ceilings and a large room. I can’t wait to see it installed!

These lights were designed as a pendent light for bars, kitchens, hallways or anywhere a cute source of light is needed. They complement my large lights and work great to fill in the edges of your house, or restaurant light plan. Each one is uniquely formed Red hot under our 20 ton press. They come in 3 sizes and up to 3 layers. Hung by twisted cotton cord, or pipe with a canopy to match.
