Keeping the Past Present
"Architecture is the highest form of art because it's the art we live our lives in every day." —Brett Waterman
Brett Waterman has been preserving and restoring historic buildings around the United States for over 25 years. His clients have included numerous homeowners of historic homes, as well as consulting for commercial and public building preservation and restoration. Some of his residential restoration work has been featured on the television show he hosts, Restored.
Waterman said his professional experience caused him to develop an appreciation for the lasting work of craftspeople who moved to the Americas over the last few centuries:
"I'm learning from those before me and they're still teaching me, because I'm pulling apart what they put together two or three hundred years ago."
What is Arts & Crafts Lighting?
Brett Waterman discusses the origin of the Arts & Crafts movement—sometimes called Craftsman or Mission styles—and shows some historical lighting that caught his eye.
He described why he finds the handcrafted nature of the style so appealing:
"It's all about custom, unique and special
pieces that feel very personal, and most
ornamentation is purposeful."
