Craftsman Copper specializes in creating museum quality, hand hammered copper lighting fixtures in the American Arts and Crafts style. From wall sconces to table lamps, interior to exterior fixtures, our designs or yours, you can rest assured that you'll be purchasing the best custom lighting available today.

All pieces are painstakingly hand formed and textured with a variety of hammers and mallets over custom shaped steel stakes in the tradition of the great American craftsmen who defined the style a century ago: Dirk Van Erp, Gustav Stickley, and August Tiesselinck to name but a few. Like these pioneers in the field of coppersmithing, there are no machines used to shape our hollow ware pieces. They are all formed from a flat sheet of high quality copper and feature the tell-tale seam that points to their beginnings. Each piece is as individual as the hammer blows that shaped them.

Craftsman Copper is a brand new studio, established in November of 2005. Because of the amount of time and attention to detail necessary in creating these lighting fixtures, you'll notice there are very few images and designs thus far on our website. Not to worry, as more pieces are designed and produced they will photographed and added. If there is something you'd like to have James build for you, don't hesitate to call or e-mail and ask for it. Custom work is our specialty, and James can provide you with a detailed scale drawing of your fixture before any work is started. This allows you to be involved in the creative process, and final design of your custom lighting piece!

So, whether you're a seasoned collector, or just beginning a relationship with the Arts & Crafts style, Craftsman Copper can bring your ideas to life. We look forward to working with you in creating beautiful, timeless, hand crafted lighting for your home or office.
