Here's an interesting firm, Studiokca, that I started to do work for. Headed by husband and wife Jason Klimoski and Leslie Chang, theirs is an unusual practice in that they are literally hands-on with the entire design process.
In addition to straight architecture they also design and fabricate light fixtures and furniture. Jason is pictured here working on a custom light fixture made up on hundreds of spoons. Recently, they won the "City of Dreams" competition, an AIA sponsored competition for Governor's Island which involves designing and fabricating a cloud shaped pavilion out of recycled plastic bottles filled with colored liquid. A mock-up section of the pavilion can be seen below upper left Here's a link to the project page: HEADINTHECLOUDS.
