Lamp & Gift

We greatly value each moment of our lives, and we hope you will preserve all your special moments through our handmade customized lamps. Our lamp shades are handmade with Hanji, traditional Korean paper that has been in use for over 1500 years. Due to its sturdiness and smooth texture, Hanji has been used to make various household items, such as sliding doors and lanterns. Our Hanji lamps provide a classic, yet personal and sentimental, atmosphere. If you send us your precious photos, we will adjust the photos and create a lampshade that depicts your own personal story. 
In addition to Hanji lamps, we also offer other gifts that are made of Hanji, such as handmade cards to celebrate graduations, birthdays, mother’s day, and others. We also offer traditional African art, called Tinga Tinga, from Tanzania, which displays brilliant and highly saturated colors. Please visit our store in Ellicott City and we would love to share with you our passion in traditional art and gifts.

...But maybe your eyes are?
If you are over 40 don't rule out the possibility of 
cataracts if you are experiencing clouded or blurry 
vision, sensitivity to light, dullness of colors, or difficulty 
driving at night.
A cataract is when the natural lens of the eye becomes 
clouded due to age and eventually causes blindness.
Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss 
for those over 40, so it is important to have your eyes 
examined regularly. The good news is, if you need cataract 
surgery it is a very successful procedure for restoring vision.
There are a number of risk factors for cataracts: 
- extended UV exposure 
- diabetes 
- hypertension 
- obesity 
- smoking 
- certain medications 
- eye injury or surgery 
- family history among others.
Contact us to learn more about prevention, risks and 
treatment for cataracts to ensure years of healthy vision.

Patapsco: Silent Witnesses to an Enduring Current
Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 01:00 pm to Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 05:00 pm

The Museum of Howard County History at 8328 Court Ave, Ellicott City, MD 21043

Patapsco is a body of archival, photographic, and sculptural works anchored by artist Riley Goodman’s relationship with the Patapsco River Valley. The series, inspired largely in the aftermath of the 2016 Ellicott City flood, operates as a means to illustrate a narrative through objects, places, and stories that have endured the passage of time and have been recovered by the artist over the past sixteen years.

Each work is established through its representation of the towns of Catonsville, Daniels, and Ellicott City, Maryland. The work analyzes the relationship of these three locations to the Patapsco River and to Goodman’s personal and genealogical history.

Patapsco seeks to expose history that is hiding in plain site, each piece contributing to a larger story of the historically rich Patapsco River Valley and the way in which this area has nurtured and shaped the artist as a person.

The exhibit is presented in conjunction with Ellicott City’s Flood Commemoration Anniversary by the Howard County Historical Society and Patapsco Heritage Greenway. It is sponsored by Indigo Ink Digital Printing.
