About Joseph Love (Jan. 1928 - Oct. 2010)

I regret to announce that on the evening of Monday, Oct. 18th, Joseph (Joe) Love passed away peacefully in his home. His family was with him at the time as he slipped quietly away to be with his Lord. He passed away from the complications of a broken leg that happened in June of this year. He will be missed by his friends and family as well as many of you who knew him through emails or in association with his lamps.  - Justin Love 2010 (Joe Love's Son)

Artist Joseph Love, a former Stone Mason & Rock Hound, who created only a limited number of these lamps each year, about one lamp per week.  Joe truly loved his work and strove to Montana Agatemake each lamp unique and special in some way.  He signed his lamps with his signature etched on a piece of agate or etched on a brass plate and attached to each lamp he created.

Joseph Love assembled each lamp by hand, selecting, slicing, shaping, and polishing Montana Agates from his own private collection of Gemstones.
