Welcome to a journey of enlightenment and illumination.

Erleuchten Lamps tell a story. A timeline of ancient to contemporary history to current events. While several lamps are congruently worked in parallel forming collections, the amount of time to make one lamp from thought to completion is roughly twelve months. Every lamp is made with purpose and fits into a grand story that progresses as more lamps and collections are complete. All lamps are built to last.

Our story begins before time.

Deep in a cave, there is no light. In a sound proofed room, a void of sound. In the beginning there was nothing, absolutely nothing… no gravity, no matter, no energy, no light, no sound, no life. However, over an immeasurable amount of time, something held together this… nothingness. An omnipresent vibration.

A gentle vibration, vibrating… vibrating… vibrating… vibratinG… vibratiNG… vibratING… vibraTING… vibrATING… vibRATING… viBRATING… vIBRATING… VIBRATING… VIBRATING… VIBRATING… VIBBBRRRAAATTTIIINNNGGG…

boom. the universe begins. begins from love, the omnipresent vibration. (Erleuchten II "Tani")

Light is born...

The Relic Collection 2017-2021


Rich with knowledge, “The Relic Collection” represents the creation of our universe to contemporary times, designed as relics passed through time educating the wise and guiding civilizations.

The Relic Collection was worked on from January 2017 - December 2021. Released January 2022.


TANI


TaniErleuchtens “Tani” Lamp represents math (opposing Golden Spirals) utilized for the universe in the initial creation “bang”, differentiating tightly compressed matter against vastness of space. The birth of stars spawning planets and life.

“Tani” uses a low watt, frosted bulb promoting a relaxing and beautiful amber light projecting gentle and soft nebulous points of light. Viewing the lamp shade directly shows hard points of light, infant stars birthed in the projected nebula. Translucent amber paper-thin wood you see matter that travels in space free of a galaxy or solar system.

INTERGALACTIC


IntergalacticOur universe, in its infancy and coded into the Golden Spiral a phyllotaxis built travel infrastructure between great distances of space using Einstein Rosen Bridges shown in the relief worked lines, pulling power from the ether, shown on the poles translucency variation via worked wood thickness.

“Intergalactic” is an atlas of our universe, galaxies marked on the lamps shade at each carrefour.

A low watt frosted bulb is used projecting “galaxies” into your room. A frosted low watt bulb projects the “galaxies” blending the trillions of stars that make a galaxy into a visually digestible and pleasing ambiance.

HOME


HomeAs our universe begins to mature, stars stabilize mothering solar systems as planets form ecosystems and life after their tumultuous birth. Once a pulsing and spinning sphere of molten material hammered by giant formations of matter our planet endures cycling ice ages and warm periods with global catastrophic impacts in between life sustaining climate for billions of years settling in to the planet we currently call “Home”.

“Home” is an incredibly accurate globe showing our planets continents and major warm and cold ocean currents. The continents were painted a half dozen times. Matthew was not getting the desired result then while mixing paint with a toothpick, scooped up a little paint and gently placed a tiny bump of paint on one of the continents. Noticing the desired effect, Matthew spent two months painting “Home’s” continents and oceans with toothpicks one little dab and stroke at a time giving this piece a very visually and physically tactile experience. Winter satellite images were used to color match land mass diversity. An antique Nautical Compass was referenced for the bottom design encompassing Antarctica where stain instead of paint was used achieving texture polarity.

For the end cap a very special burl was selected. Naturally ridden with irregularities “N” “E” “S” “W” was burned into the continuation of the lamps southern pole compass so the collector can find their way.

Higher illumination fit “Home” with warm but sharp lined shadows protruding from the bottom of the lamp onto your large oak office desk in your mountain home on the lake, or table on your mega yacht while you travel the globe. To achieve this a high watt clear bulb is used.

PI


PiPlanets formed. Children of the Universe begin to populate, in some cases civilizations are solidified. Ubiquitous throughout the Universe and realized at some point by a civilization trying to create order out of chaos, is “Pi”.

June 1st 2008 in Wiltshire, England a crop circle appeared. Retired Astrophysicists Dr. Michael Reed deciphered the crop circle being a representation of Pi rounded properly to the 9th decimal.


Erleuchtens Lamp, “Pi” shows this representation beginning at the center pole, counting outward and down the shade ending in three circles at the middle of the lamp shade. Pi is then counted in reverse from the ninth decimal back to dot three. Encoded in “Pi’s” design is a secret message.

The end cap is carved to display this representation of “Pi”.

“Pi’s” base is the tallest in “The Relic Collection”. The lamp shade is offset more than the other lamps. “Pi”, being based on a crop circle, looks like an intergalactic craft taking off. A higher watt clear bulb is utilized.

PAYSEUR


PayseurCivilizations now established have a need to expand. Dense populations occupy upward in growing cities converting land into homes. Food production is moved to soil rich regions. Animals are ranged in nutrient rich regions. Minerals are mined in mineral rich regions. Wood is harvested in forest rich regions. New cities and towns built to support thriving commerce and lifestyle. Tying this together in a cost-effective way are the railroads.

“Payseur” is modeled after an antique Railroad Lantern Matthew had as a child with green, round ribbed glass on four sides. Circles on the “Payseur” represents round glass on antique railroad lanterns with straight parallel lines representing ever running railroad tracks that travel in all directions delivering people and goods across the land.

The end cap is plain showing a natural notch in the burl slightly marked representing the strength and pragmatic utility of the railroad infrastructure and workers.

Visualizing a semi foggy, cool dark night dimly lighting an old cozy rural train station somewhere deep in pine filled mountains a low watt frosted bulb is used in the “Payseur”.

"Phyllotaxis V.1"

The “Phyllotaxis” series is designed off the phyllotaxis effect created when specific fibonacci spherical geometry is applied. The design possibilities using a phyllotaxis base is endless.

V.1 represents the harmonic link between mind, body, spirit, and health.

"Autumn"

Pi applied to a spiral creates a golden spiral. Layer the phyllotaxis effect over the golden spiral and you have “Autumn”, the first in a series based off this incredibly complex and gorgeous sacred geometry.

Autumn next to winter is my favorite season. Leaves change color and fly in chilled crisp wind ushering out hot stagnant summer welcoming the cold and beautiful winter. “Autumn” represents this time of year. I am happy to own this lamp until one of you buy it.
