Lighting adds ambiance to a space. For the artisans at Hammerton, ambience is a personal experience and customization is the ultimate expression of luxury. Hammerton is a decorative lighting manufacturer with deep custom design and fabrication capabilities in artisan glass, metalwork and other handcrafted materials.
What began with two young men in a Salt Lake City garage in 1995 is now widely recognized for its world-class capabilities in custom design, engineering and fabrication. “Bespoke lighting fits a space perfectly in design, materials, scale, proportion, illumination and installation,” says Levi Wilson, founder and vice president of design at Hammerton. “Personalized pieces are as unique as the person or space they are created for. Customization has been at the core of our business for 25 years.”
Hammerton encompasses two brands. The Hammerton Signature brand offers highly customizable, made-to-order products in a wide range of styles sold through design professionals for luxury residential, hospitality and commercial projects. The Hammerton Studio brand offers extraordinary design value in a more accessibly priced, quicker ship line of transitional and contemporary products. Both brands showcase the company’s artisan heritage and craft-based expertise in blown, cast and kilnfired glass, metalwork and more.

“You dream it, we do it. Our custom services include everything from modifying existing designs in size, scale, shape, materials and finish to designing, engineering and fabricating completely custom lights from scratch.”—Levi Wilson, Founder and VP of Design

Technology is critical to getting custom lighting right. We build every custom fixture at least twice: once in SolidWorks and once in fabrication. We focus as much on fixture performance as aesthetics, and technology helps us deliver custom projects in weeks, not months. We’re always excited to see new technology developments.
Innovations in powder coating technology have revolutionized the customization potential for finishes, not only in color but also in gloss, opacity, character and durability. Choose any color, any level of sheen or opacity, or a high-performance powder coat that can withstand heavy UV and salt spray climates.
Ditch the bulb. Many of our blown and cast glass designs are illuminated with integrated LED, so the decorative glass shade serves as the source of illumination without the functional distraction of a filament bulb.
