My felt lamps are made using merino wool and natural fibres such as silk, cotton and linen in natural shades of white.
Lampshades can be made to be bottom mounted or top hung for a ceiling light.
Small wooden bead bases turn the lampshade into a lamp, all you see is the beads in natural wood colour. These can be made to go with any size of lampshade to make it into a complete lamp, with white flex and a switch on the cable.
These can be made bottom mounted or top hung, as a lamp with the bead feet or lampshade on it’s own.

Stained glass lily series
This series of felts are taken from one photogragh of my favourite flower. Exploring the shapes and the sinuous, strong lines that make up this beautiful lily.
The felt is made from bergschaff wool which has a wonderful intensity to the colour. Layers of the wool are built up to produce a thick, strong felt, which I have embroidered giving a quilted texture to the pieces.
Each one can be hung on it's own, or mounted on a black canvas.
