By David Cathers
Considers a practical and aesthetic perspective on lighting styles in the American Arts and Crafts era. The invention of American Arts and Crafts lighting was an irresistible phenomenon for many early twentieth-century artisans and designers. As it blossomed, it became a unique expression of craft, creativity, and technology. Arts and Crafts Lighting examines the advent of electric lighting from 1895 to 1920, showcasing more than eighty objects in the Two Red Roses Foundation Collection. The artisans, architects, and firms responsible for these works are discussed, along with the nature of their designs, their working methods, their creative use of wood, metal, glass, mica, ceramic, and other natural materials, and their imaginative handling of incandescent light to create functional, radiant beauty within the domestic sphere.
