A wonderful weekend at Artisanal LA!

Had such an amazing weekend at The Artisanal LA Fall 2013 show! Met so many great people, felt a lot of love and hope to have gained a lot of future supporters!  There were so many other amazing vendors at the show and it was especially fun being neighbors to Banzai Jerky and Bad Pickle Tees! Hope to run into many of you again in the future and always feel free to reach out to me at! Here is a little gallery to share for those that weren’t able to make it.

Rizzo & Crane will be at Artisanal LA!

We have been an accepted vendor for the Artisanal LA fall 2013 show! We will be located on the second floor. We hope to see you there!

Who is Rizzo?

Who is Rizzo? Do you have a partner? This seems to be a question that is often asked. Essentially I (Michael Crane) am Rizzo AND Crane. My mother’s maiden name was Rizzo, and my Italian American side had a huge influence on my upbringing. Many of my designs and influences come from classic items I remember from my grandmother’s home. My strong work ethic come both from my father and mother. My mother passes away when I was an undergraduate in college. To this day I try to honor her in all I do. Please watch this video I created as a grad student in memory of her and to get an idea of who the amazing woman was that was Rizzo.

danielson – Unique industrial lamp with coffee can shade and USB outlet base

Wanting to return to the use and convenience of featuring a USB outlet on a lamp, our caffeinated brains came up with this. This lamp is cool to look at and functional. Since a child, the aesthetic of the coffee can has always been pleasing and through adulthood it’s contents give the fuel to create. This lamp combines our love for handmade refurbished crafts and the conveniences of modern technology.
