Another commission completed, this time a drum shade for a standard lamp in lovely chocolate and berry colours.

Pink-shield-drum-edge

This customer saw my work at an exhibition in Shropshire four years ago and filed away my brochure.  Earlier this year she made herself a standard lampbase and contacted me again to make her a shade to go with it.  We discussed colours to suit her room and she chose this design:

Largedrum

After all this time is still surprises me how much the colourway affects the design.

Pink-shield-drum

I really love this combination of colours (the shade is shown on a vintage mahogany lamp base, I hope it looks as good on my customer’s new oak base).

Pink-shield-drum-lit

I’ll be working on a chocolate and green drum next.
