J.A.Hokkanen lamps are designed and handcrafted in Rockport, Maine by woodworker Joel Hokkanen. J.A.Hokkanen was awarded Best in Show at the New England Fine Furnishings Show in Rhode Island, November 2016!

I participate in art shows (View Show Schedule) in New England and elsewhere throughout the year and would love to have a chance to meet you and talk about my work. I also have lamps on display in local Maine galleries.

well done,, have a great time 🙂

So beautiful!

Beautiful! How about a video showing a build? BTY, you said the glass is fitted into the wooden frame, what happens when (if) the glass cracks? Can’t get over how beautiful they are!

Fumed white oak, a tradition Arts and Crafts era treatment for bringing out darker tones from woods which contain a lot of tannin, like white oak. The maple inlay contains no tannin and stays light, providing a nice contrast. The fuming is done with concentrated ammonia vapor and brings out color in the wood without muddying or obscuring the grain as some stains can. This lamp will be at the Philadelphia Furniture Show next week. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi William, the shade is assembled in layers with the glass in between, so the glass is fully inset, it looks the same from the underside as it does from the top. And yes, I do cut the glass although I'm much more a woodworker than a glass worker.

Beautiful. What would it cost to buy one?

Beautiful work!

Beauty!

Nice, thanks for the explanation of fuming.

How do you attach the glass on the underside? Do you cut your own glass?

Your lamps are outta sight! Nice work!

The reflected light must be beautiful from these lovely lamps.

How much? 🤗

Wow!

So beautiful !!❤

Nice project.
