Birch and Willow Handmade Lamps and Sconces

roost_cleardaylight_s.jpg
Want to bring the forest into your home? Artist and designer Katherine Ahern of Birch and Willow here in Boston makes one-of-a-kind pendants, sconces, and lamps from bittersweet vines, grapevines, reeds, sea grass, and stones.

Ahern explains Birch and Willow's mission as "Nature illuminated." Her philosophy carries over to an eco-friendly manufacturing process, outlined on the Environment page of the Birch and Willow website.

It includes:

- high levels of recyclable natural materials,
- water-based finishes and adhesives,
- natural patinas,
- natural cleaning products,
- recycled packing materials, and
- in-studio recycling.

Exhale1_S.jpgWe completely approve. And we want the whole collection -- or maybe just a Cairn Lamp for our living room.

"Making objects we love to live with is exhilarating and satisfying. Creating lighting is a very literal way of making our lives brighter and more beautiful." - Katherine Ahern, owner and designer
