Reclaimed Luminosity is a collection of lamps and light sculptures, made by hand using reclaimed materials and found objects.

My vision in both art and music is guided by balancing logic and structure with openness, creativity, and improvisation. My lamps are all one- or two-of-a-kind, featuring unexpected forms that develop organically as I work. They are made using mostly recycled and up-cycled materials; including glass, metal, ceramic, slate, and granite.

Some of the defining features of my lamps are the great variety of materials combined in eclectic ways; the additional battery LEDs running inside some of the lamps; and the fact that each lamp is crafted with an artistic vision, bringing a unique sculptural aesthetic to a functional household item.

I am an artist and musician, based in Oakland, CA, originally from New Jersey. I’ve always been fascinated with light and how it interacts with shape and color in dynamic ways. After years of collecting and salvaging interesting items, I started to experiment with creating lamps as I love exploring the combination of light, form, and function. my work has been featured at a number of art galleries and was chosen to be in the 2023 edition of American Artwork, a curated online gallery and published book.
