Radiant Beauty
Most of Gifford's fixtures are made and manufactured in the hamptons where she works out of her home/studio in Sag Harbor. She builds her entire urchin collection by hand, using chandelier bulbs for the decorative exterior. She also incorporates recycled glass and steel into her hand-blown pieces, and does alot of her own non-ul wiring. "Working in the hamptons is rewarding in all the obvious ways," says Gifford, "more importantly, I grew up in places surrounded by water, so being here full-time feels right."
