In 1923, Frederick Cooper, a Chicago artist, established a studio to create beautiful sculpture and watercolor paintings. American architecture was in its heyday in the Windy City. Mr. Cooper was drawn to the still fairly new invention of lamps. Through mixing the media of brass, fabric, glass and wood, Cooper created exquisitely designed lamps that matched the swift innovation in American architecture.
Today, our aim is to provide tremendous value to our customers who appreciate unique design handcrafted in authentic materials with distinctive shades. Quite simply, we are in the craft of illuminated art. The media for our art is a broad range of beautiful materials that are inherently fussy to fabricate- brass, bronze, nickel, copper, art glaze ceramic, painted porcelain, crystal, marble, jade and alabaster.
