Business Description
I am an architect, I design custom residential homes and work with contractors and developers on commercial retail projects.

I am lighting designer, manufacturer and inventor.
I design and manufacture custom upcycled LED and traditional lighting, hardware and home decor from common industrial products. I transform insulators, trafficlight lenses and railroad industrial parts into elegant and useful products that will stand the test of time one more time.

The insulator measures 3 5/8" diameter x 4" tall. The added metal ring is 7" diameter. There are other metal hood types and they come with different insulators available.
