Cartwright New York produces classic, timeless lighting and accessories for residential and hospitality clients. Our lamps and objects are made one by one by hand in America and Italy, in the traditions of the Venetian glass masters. Our process is evident in the product, where we employ techniques dating back to the 1400’s to transform raw materials to molten liquid then to new solid form.
Some of the Master skills we employ are:
Cane/Canna: The addition of colored glass rods
Latimo: Casing of colored glass over white glass
Sommerso: Submerging a color inside a heavy clear glass envelope
Gilding: The addition of gold leaf
We work directly with designers and clients to create custom pieces for their projects. Custom colors available based upon request.
