10" diameter x 10" high
Inspired by an Arts & Crafts jug I bought, this 'Tulips' design lampshade shows how much I love everything about the whole Art & Crafts/Art Nouveau style, with its flowing shapes and natural forms.
The work, before it is put on the lampshade frame is quite big - over 32' wide and takes about a week to complete!
William Morris said it all when he said "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful" The lampshades when lit are of course both useful and I hope, believed beautiful. When lit, they show the Batik work at its best and is, hopefully, valued as a work of art just as a framed painting would be.
