Meet the maker

making kimono lamps

As one can imagine, there’s usually more happening in the background while I work. And I don’t mean just tea and lyric fm radio.

But just to give you an impression as to what it feels like, the mess is gone from the picture. Because I see nothing else once I start working. I’m smiling like a baby to the concept of a finished lampshade in my head.

Stitching kimono fabric to the frame and seeing the new lampshade emerging is the part I enjoy most about the process.

Each new creation is my favourite… until the next one leaves my hands!

My friend Agnes, the owner of Vintage Trig took these.

Thanks a lot!
