I am slowly, but surely, working through my orders and have today finished this lovely pair.  I am so pleased with how they have turned out.

They are for a customer in West Yorkshire who found me via my website.  She sent me photos of her room, paint swatches and an image of a beautiful Tree of Life woodcut and asked me to recommend a design for two lampshades.

The colours and tree design reminded me so much of a half-shade I made a few years ago that I felt sure that a simplified version in just three colours would work well.

I can’t wait to see a photo of them in situ atop their turned wood bases, against a rich red wall, either side of the Tree of Life.  I’ll be posting them off on Monday.

In fact, I like them so much I am making a similar one for the Christmas Show at the Weavers Gallery in Ledbury next week.
