This section of the website has been added to explain the incredible skill & lengthy process the artist uses to produce just one lamp
design. This is the same process metal spinning artisans and designers have employed for thousands of years until the 1930s.
Production techniques developed during the Second World War, particularly in stamping and press work, has left the hand spinner with
little room in today’s high tech manufacturing environment. It is said that at present time, less than 200-hand metal spinners are still
working in the United States.
As you read the following pages you will appreciate that when you purchase a handmade
lamp from Terry Tynan, it truly is Hand Made.
