Artisan Spotlight...One-of-a-Kind Lamps by Robert Ogden

March 31, 2016

Handcrafted lamps by Robert Ogden

Having an eye for suitable materials and the drive to transform something old into something completely new are characteristics of true artists.

Robert Ogden is a distinctive home d├ęcor artisan, hand crafting one-of-a-kind lamps through his unique artistic vision. Ogden defines his style as a fascination with industrial artifacts and a desire to repurpose obsolete bits in creative new ways. He scours flea markets, factories and junkyards, finding hidden beauty in forms originally designed purely for function.

According to Ogden, “I don’t like anything that’s perfect. I strive for the quirky imperfections, those are the ones I embrace the most.”

Ogden strives to share the softer side of industrial pieces through form, giving his lighting a romantic feel and furthering the notion of beauty through simplicity.
