Luxury Moroccan Lighting

Our Moroccan lighting accessories are a tribute to the splendors of the golden age of Moroccan art. We marry traditional and contemporary designs to produce luxury Moroccan lanterns, wall sconces, pendants and lamps. These masterpieces are carefully designed by our talented lighting designers and handcrafted from high quality metals by our Master Craftsmen in our Moroccan metalwork atelier.

Our innate passion for functional design and our desire to explore new materials drive us to surpass the limits of conformity and explore our own imagination. The creation of a Luxury Moroccan Lantern goes through six major phases and each phase is assigned to a person that we refer to as “The Maalam” (The Master):

  • The Drawing Phase: A drawing artist draws the motifs and patterns on paper, and then proceeds by carbon copying the design onto the metal slate. He also shades the spots to be drilled in order to facilitate the next Master's work.
  • The Hand Puncturing Phase: This is where the metal slate gets transferred to the Puncturing Master who will proceed by drilling the shaded areas marked by the drawing artist. They use a special jeweler's saw to do this, which they need to replace almost every half an hour because it gets dull.
  • The Engraving and Embellishment Phase: After the slate has been drilled, it goes to the Engraving Master who will use a chisel tool to embellish the complex design patterns by engraving leaves, flower stems etc…
  • The Molding Phase: The embellished slate then gets molded into the desired shape, and this is done by yet another Artisan.
  • The Welding Phase: After the slate is molded, an artisan uses Aged Bronze to weld it. Bronze is used for welding because it hides the discontinuities and it makes the Moroccan lantern look more uniform at the welding junction.
  • The Polishing phase: This is the last phase that gives the lantern its shining luster.

Our Moroccan Lighting fixtures are custom made to order and come pre-wired with LED light bulbs. We can accommodate dimension changes as well as motif design suggestions (within reason). Mycraftwork’s Moroccan lighting style encompasses the broadest décor spectrum and is suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, hall ways, Patios, living rooms etc.
