Kathleen PlateFor Kathleen Plate there is nothing more exciting than finding beauty in the unexpected.

Kathleen challenges people to look beyond the ordinary by transforming everyday beer and wine bottles into runway acclaimed jewelry and lighting. Viewing the world to be limitless in its opportunities, the Atlanta based designer never stops creating, reinventing, and inspiring others to do the same.

The techniques and materials minimize the impact upon the environment, yet maximize its impact on the people who wear it. It is Kathleen’s hope that her designs will raise a consciousness about the small choices people can make in their daily lives, which will inevitably inspire environmentally responsible choices on a much larger scale. “It’s easy for advocates to live green, but I love it when an everyday person will try to make a small change for the greater good.”

Christopher Moulder

From a childhood spent on a Florida beach, Christopher Moulder brings to his work a sense of awe about the natural world. He draws inspiration from the dynamic motion of sand, sea, sky, and lightning storms, as his hypnotizing sculptures marry movement and light. Moulder’s design process allows his work to travel unexpected and novel paths, resulting in art that espouses the same freedom of movement that inspired it.

Moulder revels in the technical nature of design, with each unique piece as both sculpture and light source. After exploring the unique properties of carefully chosen materials, he uses proprietary engineering methods to build each light with standard electrical components. Moulder’s fixtures become site-specific, permanent art installations that illuminate and enlighten with their imaginative, adventurous forms.
