Antler Art - Handcrafted Antler Lamps & Lamp Shades

How to Build a Great Antler Lamp
It's not surprising that great antler lamps start with great antlers, and I try to select the finest shed antlers I can find.  Whitetail, Mule, Red Stag, Moose, and Elk have become my favorites.  But great antlers don't assure great antler lamps, they have to be designed and then built.

I am just one, from a large group of antler lamp builders; and we are all proud of the lamps we build.  I have been designing and building antler lamps for over 10 years now, and these years have honed my skills.  I believe Antler Lamps should be assembled to look naturally balanced and still, yet animated with the drama...  they should be constructed rock solid, but show no sign of sturdy connections...  they should be wired so viewers are wondering how is this possible... and this clean look should be viewable from all sides... this is my mantra when building my antler lamps, and this is my joy... I know this because I am aware at every step, from beginning to end.

I also design and dress my own lampshades with real buckskin and with an assortment of natural adornments; this completes the antler lamp and shade, an antler art form that creates a natural atmosphere.  The shade gives the lamp a presence, a spirit in the light and dark... it's not a bright bulb that fills a room with light.  The shade casts a glow with a natural feel, like sunlight through the trees casting shadowy patterns... this creates a feeling that you are not fully indoors.  Is this possible?  I say "it has been done."
