Silk Rods - Lampshade
The Silk Rods lampshade combines beautifully fine textured silk habotai fabric with merino wool embedded with felt resistant circular discs using the nuno process. This shade sees a range of disc sizes arranaged in a falling rain pattern across the lampshade surface.
This stunning shade is made from felted silk and wool that creates wonderful atmospheric accent lighting. The natural palette complements a wide variety of interior colour schemes, both modern and traditional.
The Silk Rods lampshade is part of the Cellular Collection, a range of felted textiles inspired by cell structures examined under the microscope with macro-photographic imagery. Providing a wonderful combination of contrasting low relief surfaces and subtle lighting effects, this collection fuses finely textured fabrics, wool and resistant materials.
These lampshade are handmade using the traditional practice of wet felting. The wool, silk and resist pieces are worked together by hand, using a green olive oil soap solution. This involves applying soapy water to the fibres before rubbing and rolling the fabric and fibres, until they intermingle and fuse together, to form a permanent bond. The felted fabric is then attached to a 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 above.
Please indicate when purchasing if you would like (a) tablelamp fitting or (b) a ceiling shade.
