similar tools and the same techniques as those used by the
original craftsmen.

Lighting By Hammerworks has worked with designers, architects and contractors throughout the country. Our
Early American lighting, whether selected from our standard line or custom developed for specific projects, can
be seen on thousands of homes and in major historic Colonial municipal restoration lighting projects.

Among Hammerworks and Hearth-glo's more famous customers is the Walt Disney Company. Our fixtures have
been used on the sets of several movies, including Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" trilogy. In addition,
Hammerworks and Hearth-glo lighting fixtures can be seen at Disney's Parks in Florida, California and Japan.

restaurants and retail locations throughout the U.S.
The Right Lighting for Your Antique Colonial Home
If your vintage home is in need of antique light fixtures, deciding what to replace them with may be a challenging undertaking. While there many modern styles to
choose from, selecting a lighting fixture that is appropriate to the historic architecture of the home is an important decision.
In the colonial times lighting a room was a challenge, as electricity was not an option. Candle,and in later times kerosene were the only fuel sources for lighting.  
Antique colonial lighting fixtures where commonly made of tin,iron and wood with brass being used for formal colonial homes. Providing light in the dark colonial
homes was always a challenging task for the skilled craftsman that handcrafted each lighting fixture one by one, as we still do here at Lighting By Hammerworks.
They would incorporate hand cut mirror into tin wall sconces to reflect light back into the room. Colonial  tin wall sconces were also made with a reflector to help
bounce light back into the room. Wood was often carved to create a body for a
colonial chandelier with either iron or tin arms  holding candles to hang for lighting
the center of a room or over a dining table.
Lighting By Hammerworks has for over 30 years been creating these reproduction antique colonial lighting fixtures just as the skilled craftsmen of colonial times.  
Obviously electric has been incorporated into our lighting fixtures, but we still offer burning candle as an option on most of our antique reproduction lighting fixtures.
No matter what lighting fixture you choose for your colonial style home, you can be sure that any option offered by Lighting by Hammerworks is the right choice!
