Short history of the idea of Glowshaper Design

The initial idea that Glowshaper Design grew out of, started a bit less than 10 years ago, when I happened upon several antique maritime Fresnel lamp glasses on a flea market. The pieces were attractive on their own, but I started to think of ideas, how actual lamps could be built around them.
There is definite style to maritime lamps, and a little research brought up several designers who are extending upon that aesthetic. So I wanted to make something different than just brass and bronze. I had been doing woodworking as a hobby, building furniture for myself and as a presents to friends and family. Initially I wanted to add more wooden details to the maritime glass and brass mix, but soon became enamoured with the look of industrial steel together with the wood. More or less on the same time the larger and more creatively shaped LED bulbs became widely available. With the desire to display attractive lightbulbs as integral part of design the Fresnel glasses were not needed anymore (they are sitting on the shelf to this day, biding their time :) ). And thus the idea nucleus of Diesel Dreams product line was concieved.
Miró Geometric grew out of the idea of using more elegant and varied wooden bases for large decorative bulbs, and, when visiting Joan Miró museum, how geometric shapes and organic forms were used to contrast and complement each other in his works.
There are similar stories to the other product lines - probably to be added to this description text one day :)
The chance to actually implement these ideas came to be early 2022, when I decided to leave my longtime corporate job and strike out on my own. Well, for now, its a start for the journey, so got to see what will become of it :)

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

There is no personalization as a standard offer right now, but I am working on it. It would not hurt to ask, though :) Depending what you have in mind, it may be a simple adjustment, or something I wanted to try out anyway.

If you want something custom made to measure, specific color or shape, in the general style of the products, message me, describe your idea, and hopefully we can work something out. Note that the lead time on the custom orders would be longer, as I will be making the product from scratch.

Wholesale availability

As each product is unique, there is no offer of wholesale as such. However, I may be able to make small series of similarly styled items and sell as a batch. Message me, and and describe what you need - style, amount, etc.
