Three dimensional pebble shaped textures originally inspired by Cornish cobble stone beaches. These lampshades are made by hand tying and manipulating felted wool to create a raised pebble textured surface. The Pebble lampshade offers contrasting visual effects created by the soft sculptural surface, looking beautiful both when unlit and illuminated.
This lampshade is handmade using the traditional practice of wet felting, combined with the ancient art of Shibori. The wool fibres are first manipulated by hand tying up to 300+ pebble forms into the pre-felted wool and then worked by hand using a green olive oil soap solution. This involves applying soapy water and alot of elbow grease to massage, rub and roll the work to form permanent pebble shapes and bond the wool fibres together. The felted fabric is then 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...
