"I believe that homeware should be as special and unique as your home is to you"

"Each of my lampshades is designed with you in mind, whether you already have a vision for your lighting or are looking to me for some artistic inspiration.

I start each peice by listening to your needs and your ideas, and create illustrations which are special to you - a favourite place, a treasured memory, or perhaps that particular animal or flower design you love. The artwork is then printed onto fabric and hand-rolled by myself in my home studio onto whichever sized lampshade will best suit your space.

I love to experiment and am forever seeking interesting new projects, both large and small.
So if you have something a little bit special in mind, I would be delighted to help turn your daydreams into reality."

- Katherine.

Lampshade commissions

'Katherine was able to design lampshades that complemented our existing furnishings perfectly.
They complete our room.'

Testimonial from a happy client. City-dwellers with a love for the outdoors, t
he aim was to bring a bit of the countryside
into a vintage-styled flat in Clifton...

'Just to say that the lampshade arrived yesterday.
It's fantastic; and I couldn't have asked for anything more. I'm so pleased to be able to give this
as a wedding present.'

A highly meaningful gift for a horse lover - with this commssion there were plenty of personalised details to include,
but I was given a free artisic rein to create an interpretation.
The lampshade was designed to accompany a beautiful Stephen Pearce ceramic lamp. A joy to work on...

'Wow – that is brilliant! Totally what we want.'

This commission was for a Bristol local who wanted a lampshade to show their favourite view of the city.
I created two colourway options to choose from - day and night scenes.
They were so pleased with the final designs they decided to go for both.
