About Stone and Sawyer
We design and hand-produce stoneware ceramic table lamps that celebrate 20th century design. We place the utmost importance on quality and craftsmanship and are committed to working exclusively with American suppliers and craftspeople. Each stoneware lamp body is handmade in our studio in the Catskill Mountains of New York.
We produce each stoneware ceramic lamp body ourselves with acute attention to detail. Every lamp body is hand finished, glazed and undergoes multiple firings. We offer a selection of glazes, hand-turned wood necks and bases, fine quality brass hardware, handmade natural linen lampshades, and cloth-covered cords. Every lamp is UL Listed. We produce our lamp components ourselves and have extensive customization capabilities, including additional custom glazes, wood finishes, metal finishes and lampshades. We also produce custom designs for hospitality.
Made in America
As a bespoke lighting company that handcrafts limited-edition lamps and wares, we only work with locally sourced materials. We believe that American Made products are necessary to build a strong domestic economy. Many of the skill sets used in domestic manufacturing have been lost over the last few decades, as production has moved overseas. By producing in this country, we keep essential skills alive, both within and outside the creative arena. To us, American Made goods symbolize the creation of jobs for friends and neighbors both close and far.
Designers and artists Julian Peploe and David Ryan are the vision behind Stone and Sawyer. Inspired by mid-century design and designers like Otto and Gerturd Natzler and Gunnar Nylund, Julian and David produced their first collection, in 2014, with a focus on integrity and craftsmanship. This philosophy has shaped the company ever since. As their collection expands, so does their design vocabulary, with new forms referencing both earlier and later eras of 20th-century design.
When it came to naming the company, the partners wanted a name that evoked both material and process. Stone refers to the stoneware ceramic of the lamps' handmade bodies. Sawyer is a nod to the hardwoods that accent many of their pieces.
Stone and Sawyer lamps are in numerous hotels, including AKA Tribeca, Miraval Berkshires, Hotel Revival in Baltimore, Little Dix Bay in the British Virgin Islands and Shinola Hotel in Detroit. They have been featured in the New York Times, Wallpaper, Martha Stewart Living, Domino and Architectural Digest.
