On a Personal Note…
Hi! My name is Ken Cowdery and I’m an artist working in Manitou Springs with a laser cutter to make beautiful accent lighting. My first step when I make a luminary (or lightbox) is to design all the parts and the images on them. I use Adobe Illustrator to create the designs. A laser cutter is used to cut the pieces, paper is added, and the parts are assembled into a whole. Each luminary comes with a lamp base, LED bulb, and wood base. No matter how beautiful these lights look on this website, they look even more gorgeous in real life.
