Top shop for gifts.

Announcement    More new lanterns are in the works! I'm making a new series using freshly captured tree photos, celebrating the beauty of Vermont before the new leaves appear. Like all my lanterns, these are patiently hand-made in my shop and are available either corded with an in-line switch or with a battery-powered puck lamp that offers white, blue, red, and green options with a tap.

The Joy of Making

I'm lucky to have had such an adventurous life, and don't have any plans to stop. I've traveled to beautiful and inspiring places, I've met many kind and inspiring people, and I've been lucky enough to fall in love with a wonderful woman and with her raise a great kid. I've worked for the Grateful Dead, making them delicious (if not the healthiest) food and hanging with them and their crew. I studied graphic design and spent years working for the Whole Earth Catalog, trying to bring attention to the good people and things in this modern yet ancient world.

I started to make kites in the 1980's, inspired by the beautifully crafted kites of Japan. I still make my kites, and now use many of the same tools and techniques to make paper lanterns, one-at-a-time, all by hand in my shop in the Green Mountain National Forest in Vermont. These lamps give off a soft glow that is perfect for any room that would benefit from a touch of modern design.

Making carefully crafted objects for the home brings me a lot of joy, and I hope that you will find they make your home a more joyful place too!

    I love to design and make things. I've made kites since the 1980's, and now I'm diving into the world of folded paper lanterns. My favorite work combines art with science, and I hope it brings something unique and beautiful to your home.

    A big help around the studio, though liable to be missing for hours at a time. Management is suspicious that napping is taking place while on the clock.
