I have spent the last 20 years working on industrial plants, as an electrician and fibre optic technician.  I have been inspired by the colossal structures I get to climb. It’s like working in a sculpture park. My work environment has inspired my passion of collecting shiny, vintage items like cameras, tripods, kitchen appliances, toys and other quirky materials.

I have always been fascinated with lamps and lighting fixtures, especially art deco/vintage style.  I’ve collected and re-wired pieces for years.

I love the shapes, colours and hardiness of vintage style cameras, tripods, radios, kitchen appliances, and equipment.  I have been finding ways to bring them into our lives and homes.  My unique way is to light them up, redesign them as lamps.
