One day I worked with a plumber. I don’t like this job. Threads, pipes, caulking rope, and something always leaks. But it was the time when I looked closer at the copper. With hard and soft solder we joined kilometers of this beautiful metal. It’s a pity that something so shiny, valuable and sustainable was then put under the floor or in the concrete wall. Nobody sees it anymore. A real shame.

When soldered, the copper becomes dark, as if dirty, once it's green, once it's black. But wipe it with paste, and the shine returns. After a few weeks, you can do it again. But it won’t be the same copper, it would be even nicer. When you decide not to polish it, the copper very slowly turns green, blue or black. This is the patina. It’s up to you how your lamp will look like after a year or after decades. You decide. You may choose that it changes naturally into a noble green color. The future of your lamp is in your hands.

Well, I was to write something about myself ...

To be short. My name is Daniel. I’m an electrician ready to handle big things, but I can also fit handmade electronics into a small copper tube. When I start something, and want to see it completed. I think it's called stubbornness. But my wife calls it perseverance. I like taking pictures, that's why you can find many of them on my website. The Bulgarian landscape is so inspiring. We have moved to Bulgaria from Poland a few years ago. But that’s another story...

I truly hope you will like my lamps. Each one will be unique. And there is a story behind each lamp, which influenced its shape and name.

By the way, a friend from Jamaica told me that in his country people give names to everything, not just humans and animals. Think about it...
