Circular Rawhide Craftsman Lighting: Original Design By Artist H.J. Nick
At ArtFactory.com, award winning artist H.J. Nick specializes in creating fine art designs inspired by historic art and architecture. Among his favorite periods is the American Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century. It was a time when using the finest quality natural materials, and intricate hand craftsmanship were hallmarks of the trade. This circular rawhide craftsman lighting, is a custom ceiling light designs, inspired by this era. During this period, it became popular to use rawhide (untanned leather) for creating lampshades for high quality lighting fixtures. Rawhide is considered to be more durable for leather, and its most popular use is for drumheads. It is also popular for use in lampshades, and all fine quality rawhide lampshades are made with goatskin due to its pliability and translucence. Just like is the case in all of our leather furnishings, we use only the finest quality, American goatskin rawhide for our lampshades. Our rawhide is designed to create the perfect ambiance so there's no harsh light on you or any of your decor. We never use anything but genuine, top grade natural materials because fine are is never made from low quality faux materials.

Capture the American Spirit With Custom Rawhide Ceiling Lighting
The American Arts and Crafts movement was a direct response to the industrial revolution and what many considered to be the loss of value for real hand work. Artists and architects emphasized simple forms with natural materials that were all made by hand, not machine. The movement remained popular in America into the 1930s, with various revivals since then. However, the idea of furniture a fine art started centuries earlier. Building a family legacy has been going on since the beginning of time. Building heirloom furniture and doors intended to last forever is one of the primary ways we all have in achieving some small part of immortality. These cherished family items will touch our loved ones for many years to come through physical interactions as well as family photos. Many societies, including the Egyptians and Mayans, as well as European royalty and aristocracy have created and passed down heirlooms for thousands of years.
In fact, if it were not for these artifacts, it would be impossible to know these people ever existed, and how they were important to history. This is also the case in the 21st century within your own family. No matter if it’s a simple, hope chest with your personal message or name as a gift to a loved one, or an extravagant, fine art quality, master handcrafted, custom circular rawhide craftsman lighting, these items will be important to the story of your family history long after we are gone.
Historically Inspired Lighting Designed By H.J. Nick
H.J. Nick created this circular rawhide craftsman lighting, with hand forged iron frame, in homage to the great lighting fixtures found in the craftsman bungalows of California. H.J. Nick travels the world observing and studying historic architecture in search of inspiration for his designs. By visiting ancient castles, and seeing the art and architecture up close and personal, it allows him to be able to build modern, historically inspired pieces using the same craft and materials as the original. H.J. Nick believes that it is especially relevant to use historically correct methods and materials when building a historically inspired design. It is this attention to detail and historical correctness that separates world class fine art from low quality reproductions, and mass produced knock-offs.
