Ceramic lamp with handmade shade

Ceramic lamp with handmade shade.

My lampshade kit arrived yesterday, if you  remember I made a textural lamp base and I wanted an oval shade for it. I thought making it myself would finish the lamp off perfectly.

I have made a lampshade before and it was very satisfying to do. The kit arrived but I was a little concerned about the creases in the linen fabric, I should have known really, linen is always creased. After an awful lot of steam ironing I thought, just give it a go and see what happens. Fortunately when it was stuck onto the backing the slight creases didn’t show.

OH wired up my lamp base for me , I knew already where it would go, on the hall tables, under my Arnold Lowrey painting. It looks great there.
