Materials

The craft processes at Remains Lighting inevitably provide interesting variations and distinct markings on the living finishes and in the solid, natural materials from which we build our fixtures. Each of these distinguishing characteristics of artisanal metal and glasswork is a hallmark of a handmade Remains Lighting product.

   Finishes
We have our own polishing and electroplating departments under our roof and produce a nearly limitless range of hand tooled finishes of uncompromising quality. We anticipate that all our fixtures will change and take on slightly darker, aged patinas over time. We make all our fixtures with solid, real metal that changes and improves with age. All our finishes are termed “living finishes” because they are in constant dialog with their environment.

   Candlesleeves
Our custom, porcelain candlesleeves are unique to Remains Lighting and were inspired by the enduring quality of the glass and ceramic candlesleeves used by great makers of the past. Some certifications require metal candlesleeves which are also custom made and of highest quality. Scofield Lighting offers hand-dipped beeswax candlesleeves in a range of colors.

   Glass
Each piece of our handmade glass is unique and shows the hand of the maker. We celebrate the bubbles, striations, threads, dimples and other evidence of the blowing and molding processes as well as slight variations in the thickness, shape, cut, polish and the hue and intensity of the color in our handmade glass.
