Hammerton’s Modern Makeover

September 13, 2018

When Hammerton Lighting was founded in the 1990’s, they were the go-to lighting resource for the luxury rustic mountain market. The Salt Lake City manufacturer specialized in fabricating hand-forged fixtures with nature and animal motifs, all beautifully crafted from heavy gauge steel.

Shoppers in Utah may still remember Hammerton as “the mountain rustic” lighting company, but as the interior design industry has shifted and modernized, Hammerton has grown right along with it.

Today, Hammerton is equally well known for its innovative contemporary lighting designs in all forms of artisan glass. Hammerton artisans fuse, slump, blow and cast literally tons of glass every month in the company’s 50,000 square foot facility.  

“Glass is the ideal material for decorative lighting,” explains Hammerton founder and VP Design Levi Wilson. “It incorporates light, color, form and texture all in a single captivating medium.”

Many of Hammerton’s blown glass styles are unique in the lighting world, and for good reason. The company applies their deep expertise in design engineering and metal fabrication to produce all of their glass jigs, molds and tooling in-house.  


Their blown glass ‘Gems’ are one of the hottest looks in the lighting market today. The organic inspired LED-lit gem shade literally becomes the bulb, elevating it beyond function to a true piece of jewelry for the home.  “Gem fixtures are unique and distinctive, yet very approachable,” adds Wilson. “so they complement a wide range of interior styles.”



The Gem collection is sold under the Hammerton Studio brand, which includes a broad selection of accessibly priced transitional and contemporary lighting that ships in about four weeks. A luxury line of build-to-order lighting is sold under the Hammerton brand. All lights produced by the company are crafted to uphold what they call the “10-inch rule”, ensuring that every fixture leaves the factory looking flawless even from less than a foot away.  No imperfections here!


So if you still think of Hammerton as “the mountain rustic” lighting company, check out their two websites: hammerton.com and hammertonstudio.com.  With on-trend lighting that suits every style, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect fit for your space.
