A hand stitched and appliquéd lampshade effect for use as a table light in the living room or bedroom, detailing a coastal scene in my own quirky hand stitched style.
I collect fabric when I leave the house, basing all my choices on the palette of colours they contain rather than their pattern. I use fabric and thread as paint and create images, illustrations and scenes with movement and the emotion I feel about the subject.
Each piece of work is a one off and completely unique, the hand drawn and stitched nature of each piece means they can't be replicated and I treat each piece as a painting of a moment in time.
This scene is coastal and sea themed and whilst the appliquéd fabric creates a wash of colour, hand embroidery picks up details and elements that give movement and define the atmosphere of the piece.
A gold lining has been used which adds a warmth and coziness to any room when lit. Use a 40 watt bulb in this shade.
Materials: linen, vintage linens, velvet, cotton, wool threads, embroidery threads, and sequins. Measures 20cm in diameter, 26 cm in height (size of embroidered artwork 68 x 28 cm).

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
