Reclaim Revive and Reinvent
I am an independent designer, maker and restorer of lighting; designing, making and carefully restoring lights in my Worcestershire workshop.
My lights are a great find for house restorations, interior design projects, and even film sets.
Mid-Century Modern Ringline deep yellow/light orange ceiling pendant
1960s white glass pendant light with light green and orange flowers and gold bands
Art Deco Flycatcher hanging glass bowl ceiling light with original decorative bowl hooks
Table lamps Floor lights and Uplighters
I delight in the art of reinvention and I search out interesting manufactured objects, transforming them into unusual lighting.
Table lamps and desk lamps include lamps made from an Art Deco 'Bencini Duo-Lux' camera on a vintage tripod and a 2015 Apple Mac computer light.
Floor lights and uplighters feature lamps made from 1960s Mid Century Modern Salonaire hairdryer and an upcycled Mussel Bucket. Many lights are unique and come with a numbered aluminium tag.

Reclaimed Ceiling Lights
Original ceiling lights rewired, tested and ready for installation from the 1920s to the 1990s including a Mid-Century Modern white glass ceiling light with red top and a 1960s ‘Flying saucer’ lampshade.
Flycatcher lights include a 1920s Art Deco ceiling light with deep pink marbling and a 1920s light with striking orange and green marbling.
My new plug-in wall lights have an integral cord and plug meaning you can position them wherever you like (on any suitable wall) as they are not dependent on fixed wiring.
Wall Lights made from classic American car hub caps, original 78 records and aluminium castings and include 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air lights, HMV 78 record lights and Urban Shadow lights.
I also take on commercial projects and was commissioned by the family brewing firm Bathams to create the lighting for their new pub ‘The King Arthur’ in Hagley, Worcestershire. This involved transforming historic items from their old brewery into amazing lights. They included giant pendant lights, wall lights and extra-large trough lights for above the bars. I also designed a clock to be used as the centrepiece of the bar.
