The Blackstone pendant, Broadleaf ceiling fixture, and Wildwood wall sconce are three new Arts & Crafts—inspired light fixtures from Portland, Oregon-based Rejuvenation. All three pieces are based on a period fixture from the early 1900s with a distinctive lily-leaf trefoil canopy. To reproduce the deep grooves, rounded edges, and flowing curves of the antique canopy, Rejuvenation refrained from using 3-D rendering software and teamed up with master carver Steve Pancoast to translate the design into a single wood pattern. This carving was used to make additional polyurethane resin forms for the sand-casting process that produces the final solid-brass canopies. The art glass shades are also made by hand: Clear glass is first mouth-blown into a mold with a teardrop shape, and then, while the shade is still on the pipe, the artisan applies thin threads of opal and gold glass, giving it a feathered, vintage look.
