The Photoshoot

At the start of Spring this year I met Tanya Colclough of Eden Photography and approached her about having some photographs taken of the lampshades I made to date.

Couple of emails and texts later Tanya and I met in the Waterford Book Centre new cafe upstairs and discussed the issue further while devouring the divine cheesecake they serve with raspberry sauce and best in town flat white (a version of macchiato). Needless to say the author of this blog gorged the most.

All in all it has turned out to be a very fruitful photoshoot. The green lampshade above has been favourited by 8 Etsy users and has made it to 2 treasury lists so far. More images feature prominently on Kimono Lamps website slideshow (although slightly cropped there) and full size in our facebook page album.

Tanya did a great job and Kimono Lamps will be shown as part of the exhibition on kimono art in Japan later in this month. I wonder what will the Japanese think of them…

But that’s not all!

The best shots I’ve sent to the Dara Flynn – the editor of Ireland’s finest interiors magazine – House and Home. And guess what! – They’re going to be published in the next July/August issue!

Kimono Lamp

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This lamp belongs to a customer who used to live in Japan. She then moved back to Ireland bringing this beautiful traditional lamp base with her.

The base has waited years for the matching lampshade I custom made recently choosing the kimono fabric and the size of the shade in proportion to the base. What do you think of this?
