Austin: Machine Shop

My sweet friend Steven just introduced me to lighting from Austin's Machine Shop.
 The styles are decidedly industrial and each light is made by hand. 
A sketch is made, the glass is blown, and steel is forged to create simple, beautiful pieces that give mass production a thumbs down.
I love the chain pulley on the first two lights. There's something so satisfying about pulling on one of those things and having a light glow on or slowly fade out.
