Lt. Moses Willard , working with Tin, Copper,Brass and wood, fashions Colonial and Folk Art Lamps, Lanterns, and Chandeliers entirely by hand.

Tell us about your business.

Starting out in 1972, literally in a 2 car garage, I began by making small little tin items, basically sconces, lanterns and chandeliers, with antique tools that I still use today. As the business grew and looking for new items to produce I started to look at not only antique items to reproduce but also starting looking at different shapes that I could incorporate into my designs. I also started experimenting with different colors and finishing techniques which really helped the business. I feel that my business is evolving due to the fact that we are always trying something new and are always recreating ourselves.

What makes your business stand out?

Lt. Moses Willard is unique in the fact that we offer our customers exactly what the want. We custom build every piece to the customers specifications, whether it be color , size , or shape.

What's the best business advice you've received?

My Father has always been my inspiration. He always taught me to be the best you can be and always treat your customers fairly.
