Here is a sneak preview of some of the shades I am making. I'm really pleased with the colours and the cotton linen has a lovely texture. In the background you can see the painting that inspired one of the first patterns I created from my 50's textiles inspired artwork. My interest has gone full cycle and it is incredibly satisfying to finally have my own fabric and potential products to share. The bottom shade is made with my 50's lamp fabric which I have also had printed onto a silk scarf which I was wearing yesterday when out to meet a friend. After examining it he picked out 3 different lamps from the design that he actually owns! He named each designer and told me where in his house each lamp was which was rather coincidental (I have never been to his house - it's in LA). I didn't even know which designers lamps I had recreated in my doodle. I recall the day I drew that motif, I was scanning a book on Fifties design, closed it and put pen to paper to see what happened. I didn't want to risk doing a direct copy, it was always supposed to be a loose interpretation but it seems I stuck pretty close to the original designs.
Lover of pattern and colour. I create my own designs, products and paintings.
