Tristan Stoch of Cineastas has directed a beautiful video about the creative husband-and-wife duo behind HiiH Lights in Portland, Oregon. It's a serene five minutes, and seems to me to capture the gentle pace of the artisans' workshop.



Often drawing upon Asian aesthetics, HiiH Lights crafts sculptural handmade paper lights of all kinds. They've worked with the Metropolitan Opera of New York, creating custom lighting for the 2007 production of Madame Butterfly, but they also accept commissions -- small or large -- for weddings and for commercial and residential projects. And they sell readymade lighting too.
See some of their Chinese garden and New Year installations here.
