All designs begin on the drawing board, so to speak, and here we hope to give you a little insight into our studio.
Designing a lampshade is a work of art, and building the colours and patterns up, so that the finished lampshade stands alone as a piece of art, not simply a utilitarian light covering, requires patience, dedication and flair.
If you are searching for inspiration, maybe for that dull corner of your sitting room, or a celebratory item to cherish, these peeks into our studio may help.
Here you can see the shades in all their raw detail, not simply as a perfectly photographed final piece. The images show great detail of the brushwork, as well as glimpse of the everyday beauty of an artist’s studio.
As all our pieces are one-off specials, these captured moments are simply there to get your ideas flowing.
If the stripes take your fancy, why not look around your room and pick your favourite colours? Maybe the blue out of that seascape above the fireplace, and the yellow from the throw over that old armchair in the corner, each of your colours will mean something to you.
It is easy to forget sometimes, about the work behind hand-painted lampshades, or indeed anything not mass produced in a giant factory in China. Hopefully, these captured moments will convey the feel of our studio, so that you can see and appreciate the time, labour and love that goes into your hand-painted lampshade.
