March Hare Lampshade


I am delighted to launch my latest collection of unique Jo Hill designs for 2018. 

This beautiful lampshade features a hare in flowers and grasses, inspired by the hares that I see playing in the fields next to my garden. Its inquisitive eyes and realistic features are a fantastic interpretation of this playful animal. 

I created the original, handmade design from my studio in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside. It was created using free motion embroidery, an exciting technique where I use the sewing machine to 'draw' the details of the wildlife onto the fabric with the sewing machine.

This lampshade is an excellent reproduction of the original embroidery, and produces a gorgeous, warm glow for any room in the house.

The design is a high-quality print on velvet of my original March Hare design in warm reds, coral and pinks on a taupe ground, together with contrasting blue and green flowers created in my unique style. I have a professional photographer take a photo of my original work and then it is printed onto luxury fabric.

The fine, delicate stitching is reproduced in detail and and would make the perfect gift for any wildlife lover. These lampshades are proudly made in the UK, along with all of my Homeware and Original Textiles.

This is a beautiful way to bring a little bit of nature into your home! Long tail cushions, lanterns, coasters and placemats are also available.

Handmade by Jo Hill in the UK.


The lovely lampbases in the photographs were made for me by the wonderful Natajaq, a family-run woodturning company based in Bath. Natajaq have agreed to make their beautiful lampbases available to my customers. They are available to buy when you purchase any lampshade.

Choose from two sizes of lamp:

The 'Doric' - Dimensions: (approximate): 25 cm height. Base diameter approximately 8-9 cm - £70. Ideal for Small lampshades.

The 'Doric High' - Dimensions:  (approximate): 31 cm.  Base diameter approximately 9-10 cm - £75. Ideal for Medium lampshades.


Please note that I am happy to ship worldwide but due to the size and the fragile nature of the lampshades, it's better that all medium and large lampshades be sent on a tracked service. Please select the tracked shipping option at checkout.

Alternatively for cheaper international shipping you could have it flat-packed. You will receive the fabric attached to the PVC, with the rings and sticky tape separately. Full instructions with photographs will be provided for you to make up the lampshade.

For UK delivery you will receive the lampshade made up in full.
