There would be no better time for Aurora Lampworks to clean, rewire, and re-lamp the (22) massive chandeliers in this library than during the restoration of their cast plaster ceiling.
One of the most rewarding aspects of a lighting restorer's experience is to be part of the evolution of a lighting fixture.
We love a good lighting replication challenge—and replicating the chandeliers in the new Apple Store on the Upper East Side provided us with a great one.
Aurora Lampworks Founder Dawn Ladd likes to say she got her education at Yale. That’s because Yale University discovered her shop in New Haven, CT, more than three decades ago.
The old joke goes, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice.”
Of course it’s really not a joke—not for performers and not for Aurora Lampworks.
