Architectural Custom Lighting

The essence of light is captured in handcrafted light sculptures of laminated paper and wood by artist Stephen White.

Since 1964 this original art form has been evolving through the creative vision of Stephen White. These works are designed for residential or architectural custom lighting, where a unique artistic expression in lighting is desired.

The surface appearance of a light sculpture is parchment-like in color and texture. Each light sculpture is signed by Stephen White and numbered, signifying that it is an original work of art. None of the designs are duplicated unless designated as limited editions. These fine art sculptures are non-collapsible and come wired ready for installation.
