The Coral Wave Collection
Inspired by the flora and fauna under the sea - this collection echoes the fragile yet complex formations of coral in merino wool. Structural surface folds of contrasting sizes and textures are created by hand stitch, fabric manipulation and felting.
The undulating surface folds have contrasting heights, sizes and textures, beautiful both when unlit and illuminated, giving another dimension to this unique and practical home accessory.
This lampshade is handmade using the traditional practice of wet felting, combined with the ancient art of Shibori. The wool fibres are first manipulated with hand stitching and tied together before being worked by hand using a green olive oil soap solution. This involves applying soapy water and a lot of elbow grease to massage, rub and roll the work to fuse the fibres together to form a permanent bond. The felted fabric is them attached to the fire resistant lampshade backing and frame.
Each item is a truly unique piece of work, handmade by me in my garden studio in South Birmingham. Due to the handmade felting production process, each lampshade may have a slightly different placement of design as can be seen in the photos.
...Our lampshades create feelings of warmth and comfort to every room in your home...
