Renfort Lamps

"When the sun sets, lighting becomes essential to our lives. My mission is to beautifully illuminate the objects people love, to create reflections, shadows, ambience, and the comfort of home. Creating exquisite lighting with wood and glass is my passion."

Since 1980, Clark Renfort has been turning fine hardwood lamps on the lathe. Renfort carefully integrates each facet of the lamp, adding linear tendrils of maple, walnut, and cherry to turned hardwood bases, and finishing each lamp with slumped and kiln-formed glass shades of his own design.

The contrast of light and dark hardwoods, the sinous wrapping of tendrils, and the gently undulating glass shades combine to create an elegant and unusual lighting statement. The result is simple, elegant artistry in a functional medium.

As Michael Monroe, artistic advisor to The Guild, says,"Clark Renfort's lamps have fluid lines and beautiful craftsmanship. They are a fresh reinterpretation of Art Nouveau. There is an organic quality to the glass shades, and the color is in harmony with the lyrical, steam-bent wood tendrils of the bases. Renfort has achieved the ability to get two very different media to work together."
