Custom Copper Chandelier

Dsc 4835

Copper, Nomex
dimensions 30" x 12" x 12"

made for Ludeman

December 2014

This chandelier was created for a wonderful eclectic home in Westlake Hills with lots of glass, wood and stone.  It's an open, natural feeling abode tucked among beautiful oak trees on on Lake Austin.  My client wanted to maintain the warm feel in her lighting and the art pieces we made for her.  Thus we chose to work in our exclusive burned copper and dark patina copper to maintain a rich, natural look.  Whe was very pleased with the outcome and we are currently working on several pieces for her family ranch where we will mix rustic with modern.

Bleached Oak Doors

004

Bleached Ash, Tempered Glass and Stainless Steel Mesh

made for Scott Murray, builder and remodeler

February 2014

We were recently commissioned to make 6 interior doors for a remodel by Austin builder, Scott Murray.  Scott’s clients wanted the doors and cabinets to be as light in color as possible, so a two-step bleaching process was approved on an ash sample.  The doors and moldings had to be constructed prior to going through this bleaching process.   Four of the final doors of bleached ash have a stainless steel mesh panel and two of the doors have the steel mesh panel and a pane of tempered glass to make the doors more noise and dust-proof.
