We have long relied on Urban Electric Co. for exceptionally crafted lighting fixtures – all bench made to order and to our specifications. Seeing their company featured in a recent article in Business of Home and learning more about their dedication to nurturing the next generation of artisans makes our support of their company that much stronger.
With thoughtfulness and intention, they recruit artisans from diverse backgrounds and engage them in a 12-18 month apprenticeship program to become craftspeople. (Currently, half of the 40 craftspeople working in the shop are women.) Based on their contributions and craft, there’s a clear path to become senior craftspeople and eventually master craftspeople with the company.
This is exactly the approach we need to keep craft alive in our field, and in our country. We couldn’t be more proud to support Urban Electric and other artisans dedicated to the revitalization of craft. Join us!
Only the best,
