Meet The Light Factory Team

The Light Factory Team

If you've ever contacted The Light Factory or ordered one of our bespoke chandeliers, you've probably spoken to Ashlie, our founder and lighting designer. But today, we thought it would be fun to take you behind the scenes to meet the rest of The Light Factory team! These talented ladies are the careful hands and smiling faces behind every single bubble chandelier and light fixture we send out. And our "light factory" is this cozy production studio here in Spokane, Washington. We're a small but mighty team, and we're proud of that. It means we're able to customize every glass bubble light to fit your specific needs. From a cascading glass bubble chandelier to a modern wall sconce, every fixture is crafted by hand with diligent attention to detail. We oversee every aspect of your order, from the initial design to the way it's packaged for shipping, so we can make sure it's all juuuust right. These ladies make the magic happen!

1. What’s your favorite part of your job?

My favorite part of working for The Light Factory is having such an amazing boss, Ashlie. I’ve always loved working with my hands and crafting things, but who you work for matters just as much as what you’re doing. Ashlie really dedicates herself to making The Light Factory a great place to work. I’ve been working for her at The Light Factory since 2014 and in 2017, my fiancé and I moved across the country so I could continue working for her.



2.  What do you do in your free time?

In my free time I love to play guitar and sing at different places around town. I’ve always been a musician, and it recharges my batteries to sing to a crowd. I’ve written a few original songs and aspire to one day release a full album. I also love to bake.


3.  What’s your favorite light fixture from The Light Factory?


My favorite light fixture is the Semi-frosted 45 Bubble Chandelier with white leather. I love the contrast of the bubbles on the clean look of the white leather. 



Kelly: Our production assistant Kelly has been a part of the team since since March 2018.


1.  What's your favorite part of your job? 


It feeds my creative spirit. I get to come to work and make something beautiful.



2. What do you do in your free time?

I'm a full time mom to an active, creative, headstrong girl. Watching her grow and become her amazing self takes up most of my time. I also hike and run to spend time outdoors. I enjoy knitting, crochet and embroidery.



3. What's your favorite light fixture from The Light Factory, and why?

I don't think I have a favorite. I love the Waterfall & the Cumulus because they are each unique builds with more room for artistic work. Then again I love the symmetry of the Organic and the Petite.



Sophia: Our production assistant Sophia is the newest to the crew, joining us in December 2018. 

1.  What's your favorite part of your job?

I love that my job allows me to work independently, but within a small and intimate setting...being able to connect and work right alongside my coworkers one minute, then catch up on my favorite podcast the next.



2.  What do you do in your free time?

Hanging out with my one year old son is my absolute favorite pastime. We love exploring the outdoors, gardening, and anything involving dirt. The perfect ending to our days include MasterChef Junior, and trying out new keto dessert recipes.


Organic Bubble Chandelier


3.  What's your favorite light fixture from The Light Factory, and why?

My favorite fixture from The Light Factory is our Organic bubble chandelier. The Organic has the perfect natural shape that fits within any setting. You can dress it up, making it the statement piece of any room, or dress it down for a more subtle style.



Winnie:  Our studio dog is a 12 year old golden doodle that we've had since she was a pup. Her greatest power is blending in with almost any floor to trip you at just the right moment you're holding something breakable.
