Affordable, antique lighting fixtures in many styles, circa We are a small, independent, owner-operated, Mom and Pop, brick and mortar, specialty lighting shop in Eureka, on the north coast of California. Ken specializes in the restoration of vintage lighting fixtures, and to a lesser extent, the replication of period lighting using new or a combination of old and new parts. In , as a birthday gift for Sara and as the first step in a DIY kitchen remodel, Ken bought their first nice lighting fixture from an entrepreneur with a teeny tiny antique lighting shop full of the most beautiful lighting fixtures they had ever seen.

They still have it, still love it. Seven years later, Ken stumbled upon this same dealer while looking for a floor lamp, and learned he was about to retire. Realizing this was an opportunity for a new vocation, Ken bought his inventory and launched Old Town Antique Lighting Gallery, moving it to its current location in The number and variety of vintage lighting fixtures and shades at Old Town Antique Lighting has grown tremendously since those early days, and there is now a wide selection of new lampshades as well.

Ken does the restoration work and offers lamp repair service there, on site, and Sara helps out on Saturdays and whenever Ken is away.

Though we are rapidly eliminating the habitats that created us and most of us now live in cities, we are still the ancient creatures that evolved to live in those wild places. With our instincts pretty much intact, it would be surprising if we did not still have inborn skills for many levels of perception, especially of the environments in which we evolved.

It's likely that we all have vivid, direct perception of these realities when very young, but the world of symbols and artificial values intercedes to cause many of us to forget to look or to substitute symbols for reality. I remember spending immeasurable segments of time as a young kid, absorbed in the colors in a butterfly's wing, the inside of a wildflower, or the light in the woods.

As more or less a grownup, this shift to direct perception is much diluted visually and emotionally. I am often reminded of it, though and have spent much of my life looking closely at everything. Friends and family have long been rolling their eyes as I point out the amazing characteristics of this or that. I am often surprised at how little so many seem to notice. My painting pushes me to look and to see and feel more.

The better I see, the more I seem to be able to locate compositions that may cause or suggest this shift in perception and feeling. If my work can communicate or suggest some of these perceptions, I will have some success, and viewers of my paintings may get a glimpse of something real and perhaps meaningful to them.

I find, as perhaps do others, that when I can feel I'm a part of this larger, older world, it gives depth, meaning, and comfort to me, far beyond what most of civilization offers. A bleak future will surely follow our increasing tendency to ignore the non-human world, for which so many no longer have knowledge, interest, or feeling.

Realist art of the older, natural world, if done just right, may be able to remind people to start looking again. My development as an artist has proceeded in a somewhat unconventional way. I come to my work from a deep connection to, and understanding of my subjects. When I was four my family moved from the city to the country, where I completely and permanently immersed myself in the natural world.

My mother, an artist, encouraged this and in lieu of kindergarten I did natural history studies including formal plant and insect collections and artwork relating to these subjects under the supervision of a neighbor, Dr.

Julian Steyermark, curator of Chicago's Field Museum. All through grade school and beyond, my passion was exploring the woods, creeks, lakes, swamps and old fields of my rural Illinois surroundings, looking closely at everything.

My mother was my school art teacher through eighth grade; a thorough art background was mandatory. Looking for a career where I could continue roaming the wilds I earned a Bachelor's degree in forestry at Colorado State University. While in graduate school I also took many art courses and designed and built my own large oil-fired kiln and a wheel and was a professional potter for some years. In the years since then I have been teaching art and science at our small, mountain school and painting, while helping to raise our kids, developing and working on our homestead farm, and exploring the local mountains.

In addition to this art education and experience, I have absorbed the classic landscape painting instruction of John F. Carlson, and have studied landscape painting with Stock Schlueter. Since I have had twenty-some solo exhibitions and have won nine awards in group and juried exhibitions. I try to find the light that creates engaging compositions that also strike me with the emotional and perceptual intensity that I first experienced as a child. I spend every available moment hiking the local mountains, looking in all my favorite places for that light, and trying to paint it.

In painting I strive to capture an encompassing interpretation of a landscape, broadly informed by my scientific understanding of the botanical, ecological and geological elements along with my lifelong observational experience and emotional connection.

I like to think that my work might give viewers a glimpse or reminder of common but increasingly often overlooked moments when they may reconnect directly and emotionally with the natural world. Join us for Arts! Alive, from 6 to 9 p. Every gallery, store and restaurant that showcases the work of local artists is open, the artists whose works are on exhibit are usually present to talk with you about what they do, refreshments are sometimes served, live music can often be heard, and hordes of happy people of all ages stroll from place to place, soaking in the scene and seeing a lot of great artwork.

Visitors to the area who love the arts and the best of small town life, would do well to plan their trip to coincide with this monthly, year-round, rain-or-shine event. Saturday, November 3, John Palmer, landscape paintings. Most of the chandeliers and pendants pictured here, can be lengthened or shortened or otherwise modified to be suitable for most ceilings.

Often, we can offer to shorten a piece at no extra charge, or lengthen it for a modest surcharge, or make a fixture that was designed for a level ceiling, suitable for installation from a sloped ceiling. Please inquire about the possibility of hanging a certain fixture in a particular location in your home, before ruling it out based on its length or design. How high is your ceiling?

To determine the proper length of your lighting fixture, we need to know the height of the ceiling where it will be installed, and whether it will be an overhead light or hang over a table or kitchen counter or bar. We'll also need to know whether the ceiling is level, or sloped a.

The easiest way to measure the height of your ceiling, requires a 1" wide, retractable tape measure. Pull it out a few feet and, bending it over, put the end on the floor. Repeatedly pulling out more tape, advance the bend in the tape upward until it touches the ceiling. If you cannot read the tape at that height, grasp both legs of the bent-over tape and lower it down to eye level to get your reading.

If you are math-challenged, think only in terms of inches, not feet -- it will be so much easier. If your fixture is to hang overhead, we feel it is necessary that it hang no lower than 80" 6'8" , the height of a standard door jamb, and we would generally recommend at least 84" 7' whenever possible.

If your ceiling is at least ten feet high, it is helpful to consider a general rule of pleasing proportions, that a lighting fixture should hang one-third of the way to the floor. To follow this guideline, from a twelve-foot ceiling, a fixture would hang 48" to a height of 96" 8' ; from an eleven-foot ceiling, it would hang 44" to a height of 88" 7'4" ; from a ten-foot ceiling, it would hang 40" to a height of 80" 6'8".

I think most with a ten-foot ceiling, however, would be happier with a fixture 36" long, that hung no lower than 7' high, especially if they are fairly tall. Over the dining table. I feel that the old rule of thumb, that a chandelier should hang down to a height of 30" above the table, is too low for most homes today. If the top of a dining table is 30" high, give or take an inch, this rule would place the bottom of a chandelier at only five foot high.

While this might be fine for a formal dining room in a traditional setting, where family and guests enter and immediately sit, and stay seated until they rise and leave the room, today, many have a dining table more integrated with the rest of the home, and often socialize in a more informal way, standing in the kitchen or around the table, and talking to one another across the table.

I am 6'2" tall, and in order for a chandelier not to be "in my face," interfering with making direct eye contact across the table with another tall person, it needs to be a little higher than that. Some say that we are taller than our eighteenth century counterparts, due perhaps to better nutrition. Also, our modern incandescent, flourescent and LED lamps both are much brighter than the candle, oil lamp, open-flame gas and early electric lighting of over a century ago, when a luminaire had to be hung as low as possible to give enough light down at table level.

Therefore, in most situations, I recommend that a lighting fixture be sized to hang down to 6' 72" high over the table or kitchen counter or bar, or at the most, to 5'8" 68" , if the visual mass is not the lowest portion of the fixture. This means a fixture " long from an eight-foot ceiling, 36" long from a nine-foot ceiling, 48" long from a ten-foot ceiling, etc.

If you have eight foot ceilings, you may consider the lights in our "chandeliers" catagory for over your dining table, as many of them can be shortened to 24" or so. Elsewhere, you can shop the "flushmount" category, for fixtures that mount flush to the ceiling or hang no lower than 16" for a minimum clearance of 6'8" 80".

For bedrooms, hallways and bathrooms especially, consider bead-chain fixtures, with beautiful shades from the s-early '40s. There are many lovely vintage shades available, which we sell mainly with new fixtures, either solid brass polished and lacquered, or nickel plated and polished , or steel which are cheaper, but susceptible to rust.

If this is the type of fixture for you, choose the shade you like, the type of new fixture you want solid brass or painted steel and its finish brass, polished and lacquered; polished nickel; or steel, painted "antique brass," "oil rubbed bronze," "coppery chocolate," "satin black," "antique gold," etc.

Note, these fixtures have just one light 60 watt max. Bead chain fixtures are not yet on the website; call for more information. If you have a sloped ceiling, and are in love with a gaslight, gas-electric combination, or early electric pendant or chandelier, some modification will have to be made to your fixture, to allow it to hang plumb from a ceiling that is not level.

Remember, gas lighting required plumbing; the iron pipe bringing gas to a chandelier came out of a level ceiling at a right angle to the ceiling.

Albert Luthuli , Desmond Tutu , F. Since , the city has struggled with problems such as drugs , a surge in violent drug-related crime and more recently gang violence. In the Cape Flats alone, there are approximately , people in over different gangs in While there are some alliances, this multitude and division is also cause for conflict between groups. Cape Town is located at latitude A thin strip of cloud, known colloquially as the "tablecloth", sometimes forms on top of the mountain.

The Cape Town region is characterised by an extensive coastline, rugged mountain ranges, coastal plains, inland valleys and semi-desert fringes. Robben Island has been used as prison where people were isolated, banished and exiled to for nearly years.

It was also used as a leper colony, a post office, a grazing ground, a mental hospital, and an outpost. Currently visitors can only access the island via the Robben Island Museum boat service, which run three times daily until the beginning of the peak season 1 September.

The boat ride over to Robben's Island can be rough and cold, depending what time of day you go. Winter, which lasts from the beginning of June to the end of August, may see large cold fronts entering for limited periods from the Atlantic Ocean with significant precipitation and strong north-westerly winds.

Winter months in the city average a maximum of Summer, which lasts from early December to March, is warm and dry with an average maximum of The region can get uncomfortably hot when the Berg Wind , meaning "mountain wind", blows from the Karoo interior for a couple of weeks in February or early March. Late spring and early summer generally feature a strong wind from the south-east, known locally as the south-easter or the Cape Doctor , so called because it blows air pollution away.

This wind is caused by a high-pressure system which sits in the South Atlantic to the west of Cape Town, known as the South Atlantic High.

Cape Town receives 3, hours of sunshine per year. As of , Cape Town is experiencing a water crisis , following a drought that began in , which is said to be the worst that the region has experienced in one hundred years. Despite Day Zero the day when Cape Town's taps will run dry now being pushed back well into , the water crisis still exists and residents still have to follow strict restrictions.

If Day Zero is reached next year, the city's taps will be turned off and people will have to queue at allocated taps in the city for a daily limit of 25 litres 6. Located in a CI Biodiversity hotspot as well as the unique Cape Floristic Region , the city of Cape Town has one of the highest levels of biodiversity of any equivalent area in the world.

It is home to a total of 19 different vegetation types , of which several are completely endemic to the city and occur nowhere else in the world. This enormous species diversity is mainly because the city is uniquely located at the convergence point of several different soil types and micro-climates. Table Mountain has an unusually rich biodiversity. Its vegetation consists predominantly of several different types of the unique and rich Cape Fynbos.

The main vegetation type is endangered Peninsula Sandstone Fynbos , but critically endangered Peninsula Granite Fynbos , Peninsula Shale Renosterveld and Afromontane forest occur in smaller portions on the mountain. Unfortunately, rapid population growth and urban sprawl has covered much of these ecosystems with development.

Consequently, Cape Town now has over threatened plant species and 13 which are now extinct. The Cape Peninsula , which lies entirely within the city of Cape Town, has the highest concentration of threatened species of any continental area of equivalent size in the world. Cape Town's urban geography is influenced by the contours of Table Mountain, its surrounding peaks, the Durbanville Hills, and the expansive lowland region known as the Cape Flats.

These geographic features in part divide the city into several commonly known groupings of suburbs equivalent to districts outside South Africa , many of which developed historically together and share common attributes of language and culture.

The Atlantic Seaboard lies west of Cape Town and Table Mountain, and is characterised by its beaches, cliffs, promenade and hillside communities. The Koeberg Nuclear Power Station is located within this area and maximum housing density regulations are enforced in much of the area surrounding the nuclear plant.

The Southern Suburbs hug along the eastern slopes of Table Mountain, southeast of the city centre. West of Wynberg lies Constantia which, in addition to being a wealthy neighbourhood, is a notable wine-growing region within the City of Cape Town.

Constantia not only offers a luscious suburban living lifestyle, but also attracts tourists for its well-known wine farms and Cape Dutch architecture. Until recently, this predominantly English-speaking area was quite rural, however the population of the area is growing quickly as new coastal developments proliferate and larger plots are subdivided to provide more compact housing.

South Africa's largest naval base is located at Simon's Town harbour, and close by is Boulders Beach , the site of a large colony of African penguins. The Eastern Suburbs lie southeast of the Afrikaans-speaking neighbourhoods in the Northern Suburbs, beyond the airport, and notably are the site of several new subsidized housing projects and are also Afrikaans-speaking.

The Cape Flats Die Kaapse Vlakte in Afrikaans is an expansive, low-lying, flat Afrikaans-speaking area situated to the southeast of the central business district of Cape Town. From the s the area became home to people the apartheid government designated as non-White and has been described by some as 'Apartheid's dumping ground'.

Race-based legislation such as the Group Areas Act and pass laws either forced non-white people out of more central urban areas designated for white people and into government-built townships in the Flats or made living in the area illegal, forcing many people designated as Black and Coloured into informal settlements elsewhere in the Flats.

Since then the Flats have been home to much of the population of Greater Cape Town. The district takes its name from the imposing Helderberg Mountain , which is Afrikaans for "clear mountain", and culminates at a height of 1, metres 3, feet as The Dome.

Cape Town's local government is the City of Cape Town, which is a metropolitan municipality. Cape Town is governed by a member city council. The city is divided into electoral wards; each ward directly elects one member of the council, whilst the other councillors are elected by a system of party-list proportional representation.

In the local government elections of 18 May , the Democratic Alliance DA won an outright majority, taking of the council seats.

The African National Congress , the national ruling party, received 73 seats. This represents an annual growth rate of 2.

Cape Town is the economic hub of the Western Cape Province, South Africa's second main economic centre and Africa's third main economic hub city.

It serves as the regional manufacturing centre in the Western Cape. As a proportion of GDP, the agriculture and manufacturing sectors have declined whilst finance, business services, transport and logistics have grown reflecting the growth in specialised services sectors of the local economy. Fishing, clothing and textiles, wood product manufacturing, electronics, furniture, hospitality, finance and business services are industries in which Cape Town's economy has the largest comparative advantage.

Between and the city's Gini coefficient , a measure of inequality, improved by dropping from 0. Cape Town has recently enjoyed a booming real estate and construction market, because of the World Cup as well as many people buying summer homes in the city or relocating there permanently.

The central business district is under an extensive urban renewal programme, with numerous new buildings and renovations taking place under the guidance of the Cape Town Partnership.

Cape Town is not only a popular international tourist destination in South Africa, but Africa as a whole. This is due to its mild climate, natural setting, and well-developed infrastructure.

The city has several well-known natural features that attract tourists, most notably Table Mountain, [67] which forms a large part of the Table Mountain National Park and is the back end of the City Bowl.

Reaching the top of the mountain can be achieved either by hiking up, or by taking the Table Mountain Cableway. Cape Point is recognised as the dramatic headland at the end of the Cape Peninsula. Many tourists also visit Cape Town's beaches , which are popular with local residents. Though the Cape's water ranges from cold to mild, the difference between the two sides of the city is dramatic. This is similar to water temperatures in much of the Northern Mediterranean for example Nice.

The oceans in fact meet at the actual southernmost tip, Cape Agulhas , which lies approximately kilometres 93 miles to the south east.

The misconception is fuelled by the relative warmth of the False Bay water to the Atlantic Seaboard water, and the many confusing instances of "Two Oceans" in names synonymous with Cape Town, such as the Two Oceans Marathon , the Two Oceans Aquarium , and places such as Two Oceans wine farm. The majestic slopes of the Twelve Apostles to the unspoilt boulders and white sand beaches of Llandudno, which the route ending in Hout Bay - a diverse bustling suburb with a harbour and a seal island.

Cape Town has direct flights to most cities in South Africa as well as a number of international destinations. Cape Town International Airport recently opened a brand new central terminal building that was developed to handle an expected increase in air traffic as tourism numbers increased in the lead-up to the FIFA World Cup.

The airport's cargo facilities are also being expanded and several large empty lots are being developed into office space and hotels. Cape Town has a long tradition as a port city.

Metrorail operates a commuter rail service in Cape Town and the surrounding area. The Metrorail network consists of 96 stations throughout the suburbs and outskirts of Cape Town. Cape Town is the origin of three national roads.

The N1 and N2 begin in the foreshore area near the city centre. An older at-grade road, the R , runs parallel to the N1 from Bellville. It becomes a multiple-carriageway at-grade road from the intersection with the R44 onwards.

An older at-grade road, the R , runs parallel to the N1 initially, before veering south at Bellville, to join the N2 at Somerset West via the suburbs of Kuils River and Eerste River.

It runs north, initially as a highway, but becoming an at-grade road from the intersection with the M5 Potsdam Rd onwards. There are also a number of two- and three-digit regional routes linking Cape Town with surrounding areas. The R27 originates from the N1 near the Foreshore and runs north parallel to the N7, but nearer to the coast. The R44 enters the east of the metro from the north, from Stellenbosch. It exits the metro heading south hugging the coast, leading to the towns of Betty's Bay and Kleinmond.

The R runs from the R in Bellville, heading north across the N1 through Durbanville leaving the metro to Malmesbury. This R starts north of Koeberg from the R27 and, after meeting the R, continues north to Darling. The R originates from Muizenberg and runs along the coast, to the south of Mitchell's Plain and Khayelitsha, before veering north-east, crossing the N2 west of Macassar, and exiting the metro heading to Stellenbosch. Each city's M roads are independently numbered.

Most are at-grade roads. However, the M3 splits from the N2 and runs to the south along the eastern slopes of Table Mountain, connecting the City Bowl with Muizenberg. Except for a section between Rondebosch and Newlands that has at-grade intersections, this route is a highway. It is a highway as far as the interchange with the M68 at Ottery, before continuing as an at-grade road.

Cape Town suffers from the worst traffic congestion in South Africa. Golden Arrow Bus Services operates scheduled bus services throughout the Cape Town metropolitan area.

Cape Town has two kinds of taxis: Unlike many cities, metered taxis are not allowed to drive around the city to solicit fares and instead must be called to a specific location.

Cape Town metered taxi cabs mostly operate in the city bowl, suburbs and Cape Town International Airport areas. Large companies that operate fleets of cabs can be reached by phone and are cheaper than the single operators that apply for hire from taxi ranks and Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.
