Dan Trachtman’s unique pieces are fresh interpretation of Art Deco
TAKOMA PARK, MD, US, November 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — After years in development, Stone and Dove Hardwood Lighting launches with a unique lighting collection. Local master woodworkers and glass artists craft each piece, synthesizing carefully constructed hardwood components with hand-blown glass shapes or artisan sheet glass. There is an unmistakable influence of Art Deco vocabularies, utilizing essential geometric shapes and repetitive patterns. Each work can be considered a statement piece intended to transform a space.
The collection can be separated into two general categories: accent lighting and task lighting. Among the accent pieces, “Deco Cathedral” is a fine example of the merging of Art Deco design with Arts and Crafts craftsmanship. Inspired by the beautiful Art Deco radios of the 1920s and 30s, the Deco Cathedral lamp’s towering appearance utilizes layers of maple and cherry to amplify the feeling of depth, while tapered walnut columns create an edifice with presence. “Rising Bubble”, another stunning accent piece, is highly sculptural and features an evocative curve of unique hand-blown glass, implying upward motion, centered between octopus-like arms, which seem to squeeze and pull away. When lit, the glass reveals beautiful organic swirls.

The “Whitman” desk lamp is one of the task pieces in the collection. It is informed by the classic Emeralite lamp (more commonly known as the Banker’s Lamp), circa 1909. The Stone and Dove lamp adds layers of complexity with a more organic shade shape, hand slumped and cut artisan glass, and our signature all wood construction. The shade swivels to direct the light.

The “Swan” lamp showcases a master woodworkers’ craftsmanship through a graceful maple, cherry, and walnut form that appears to float in implied water. A conical hand-blown shade, informed by the classic Asian rice hat, features a monochromatic gradient with a subtle sunburst on top and aquatic swirls towards the bottom.
The collection also includes other task and accent lights as well as a pendant. More information about the collection can be found at stoneanddove.com.
