We look for quality in the things we surround ourselves with. We make things. The thing is - nearly 200,000 wine barrels are retired each year in California alone. Although some end up as planters or firewood, many are destined for landfills. We decided to do something about that. We rescue wine barrels from wineries that simply don't have the space to keep them any longer. We then give them new life - in this instance the design is not only a beautiful but practical wall sconce but also a functional work of art. Each barrel stave holds it's own history and nuances meaning no sconce will be exactly the same keeping the integrity of the wood. It's a wonderful way to display the barrel stave and appreciate it's history.
