Lâm Quảng and Kestrel Gates, husband and wife, work together hand sculpting and painting custom lighting for private homes, shops, restaurants, offices, galleries, outdoor exhibits, and even the New York Metropolitan Opera.
Kestrel, who has a background in the performing arts, joined him in 2004. They design pendant and table lamps, sconces, standing lights, and chandeliers that are inspired by nature... flowers, sea creatures, and even insects.
Lâm and Kestrel work with natural, raw materials, such as cotton and abaca paper pulp, local beeswax, damar resin, walnut and indigo dyes, along with Golden airbrush paint. He creates the armature of the lights with bamboo and wire of various types.
Is it any wonder?
Have a great weekend!
