During this pandemic I have loved giving my garden the attention it deserves, that includes this chandelier made from a vintage potato sieve. I had a couple of glass bottles with ships inside one of the Mayflower and one
Spanish Galleon that I hung from the grid along with lots of decanter stoppers which are lovely for catching the light. The lamp fittings are for outdoor use teamed with vintage style filament bulbs. It's a special place to sit in the evening with a gin and tonic of course!
As usual you have an idea in your mind and it morphed into something different. Largely inspired by seasonal pollen a dead bea found on my window sill and a butterfly given to me by a friend. The cutout panels which i had originally painted proved too busy for this idea, so I removed them all and replaced two to hide the lamp holder inside and soften the light but also to highlight my insects s a lightbox would. There are cutout left for the light to spill back and front. The original cut out pieces were arranged over the holes to give it a more 3d effect. I think it has a really vintage decorative feel, fragile and beautiful...
The Book protector Chandelier a commissioned work designed for a dark blue sexy room is a commission. The mannequin arms have been cut down and crossed, then mounted onto a vintage linen book. The arms have been painted and distressed with some gold leaf highlights as if they've once seen better days. the twisted cord has also been distressed and we will be adding bakerlight style lamp holders with dimmable globe bulbs. The cord wrapping around the hands, which is great for being able to adjust the height in your room. It's looking lovely I can't wait to install them Mel
Reclaimed Mannequin Art Lamp looking spectacular in a beautiful georgian house hallway. The large canvas is one of my abstracts using oil and plaster to add to the story of the Australian outback. The light at night is spectacular and during the day it is bright and cosy. A beautiful arty hallway, with unique reclaimed artwork!
Four years ago in a flea market I bought this strange thing a Napoleonic Camel Saddle used in the French Egyptian War by the Dromedary division. I thought I would use it to make a coffee table but realising how rare it was I didn't have the heart to cut it up. It sat in my attic for a while then went to auction and wasn't sold. I had the idea of making it into a chandelier in the oldest part of my house with a vaulted ceiling. We knew we could only do it with a scaffold. So finally the reimagined Camel Saddle Chandelier has a new home and it won't be going anywhere! I love it's uniqueness. Upside...
