ARTISAN SPOTLIGHT results in an exquisite work of art. Urban Electric trains its own artisans and the masters oversee apprentices, ensuring that they use only the finest materials. It was such a treat to see first-hand how the artisans at this renowned Charleston company work with such passion. Urban Electric offers an extensive collection of nearly 300 interior and exterior fixtures, as well as one of the most extensive custom programs in the lighting industry. The effort that goes into each fixture is extraordinary —lasering the initial pieces out of large sheets, breaking the angles to make them fit, welding each piece together, dipping in acid to create the right finish, and powder coating with fabulous colors. Take a few moments to watch the videos that feature behind-the-scenes interviews with the unique individuals that make up this world-class team. Complete with blooper reels, our cameras capture the talents, personalities and backgrounds of this eclectic group. n JUNE JULY 2014 23
