MWC: Rough Draft Lighting

Starting to dabble with the use of heavy timbers salvaged from project sites diverting the lumber from land fills. We also removed and restored door and window hardware in an attempt to reclaim and UpCycle the waste produced from our construction sites. The intention is to produce fixtures fabricated with salvaged materials with an approachable design aesthetic that evokes comfort, a warmth, and doesn't hurt the wallet. We are currently structuring a program of designs based upon readily available materials that are on the way to the trash bin. There is still much work to be done to get the prototype fixture glowing.
