Introduction to Glow Lighting
The idea for Glow Lighting came from a simple desire - to help people step away from mass produced lighting and create something unique for their homes or workspace. Our lighting is all designed and created in Ripon, North Yorkshire. The components are sourced very carefully using British manufacturers, the majority of which are produced by local craftsmen.
It has always been a passion of mine to support British manufacturing and allow people the opportunity to buy British wherever possible, as well as enabling people to buy bespoke beautiful lighting at reasonable prices.
About Glow Lighting
I have worked in the lighting industry for a British manufacturer of commercial and industrial lighting for the last 16 years, purchasing and controlling thousands of components. Whilst this was interesting my creative juices have always yearned to run free. I have always had a keen interest in interiors, colour and art although my real passion is lighting.
To be able to bring all my passions together and create charming, unique lighting is a real thrill. Producing British lighting which has been lovingly designed and handcrafted whilst also collaborating with other British manufacturers enables me to bring my ideas to life!
We love sleek simple lines, elegant looks and a splash of colour. It is highly important to us to use local suppliers wherever possible.
Once designed and sourced the components are assembled by our small team in Ripon.
Glass shades are handmade in a studio in England by highly skilled experienced craftsmen. We have designed a standard range of ribbed and clear shades in varying sizes. However we are able to design and produce one off or multiple bespoke glass pieces as per clients' requirement.
Hand Spun Shades
Hand spun shades are hand spun in Elland, West Yorkshire by a supplier I have worked with for many years. The highly skilled workforce can produce many different shapes and sizes. These can include bespoke and one off pieces if required. The shades are hand painted using a selection of colours, however any colour can be sourced to suit the palette required, which enables an individual approach. The shades can also be chromed or nickel plated, we use an expert electroplater from Brighouse whose work is of excellent quality. One offs, small runs or larger quantities are available.
Fabric Drum Shades
Our fabric drum lampshades are all handmade in Dorset. As a stock range we have selected a stunning black crocodile and gold, or linen and gold. In addition there is a vast selection of colours and textures to choose from. A clients' own fabric can be used, or specially sourced by us to tailor to individual needs. Various sizes and shapes available.
Personally I love working closely with clients, bringing concepts and designs to life. Whether the brief is matching colours and styles, or creating something totally unique, we will bring your dream to life. Interior lighting is often overlooked. We believe good ambient lighting can transform the feel and flow of the home.
