you light up my life

Well the first batch of lampshades have arrived.
Of course I don't have any photos to post yet as they arrived this morning just as I was leaving for school and I didn't get home 'til it was dark. 'But' I hear you say 'they are lightshades, pop a bulb in and fire them up!'. Do you know how hard it is to photograph a lit-up lampshade?! Actually probably not that hard but I can't be bothered, my brain is sludge, my feet hurt and basically I can't be knackered! Tomorrow I say!
I will however muster a little energy to say that they are in three different materials- tea-towels (of course), shibori and in two sizes in Pianola paper. They give off a lovely light, I have a Pianola one set up upstairs to light the big room and the glow is really beautiful, all golden and soft. There is a tea-towel shade in the front window for you to have a look at as you go by on the tram and I'm very pleased with the shibori one, which has been made from 3 fabrics and is all spotty and pretty unlit and lit up. The rest arrive on Saturday morning. Prices from $99 to $115, all handmade here in Melbourne Town.
And of course you really need to see them at night to get the full effect..........

Think my bed is calling................

  1. they sound utterly bloody beautiful. I'm with you on how hard it is to shoot a lampshade... whilst they're all about light and shadow etc - they're a bugger to get right in a photo. Can't wait to see yours - bet they're delicious. Haven't had a chance to email you yet but hope to tonight or tomorrow. Sending some drab old uk rainy day love your way in the meantime. xxx e
