Blackbird Lampshade


Please note, this item will be made to order. This lampshade is currently on display at the Ferrers Gallery, Leicestershire.

This lampshade, part of my Garden Birds Collection, is oval in shape. This is a beautiful way to display my original designs and you get to see more of the image than on a round lampshade. I have made this lampshade using appliqué, free-motion embroidery and hand-dyed fabrics and wools. It produces a lovely glow when illuminated.

This item is handmade and therefore one-of-a-kind. Please just 'add to bag' if you would like to commission your own. Please note that this will be made to order. I can reproduce the design as accurately as possible but there will always be a slight variation in each one. I am currently working to 3 weeks so please allow extra time when ordering.

There are five sizes available:

20cm x 20cm - oval 

30cm x 25cm - oval (pictured)

20cm x 20cm - round

30cm x 25cm - round

40cm x 30cm - round

Conforms to BS EN 60598-1-2008, the British Standard for Luminaries. All of the lampshades I sell are fire resistant. The PVC material has been tested in the Lighting Association Laboratories and has passed the glow wire test.

Handmade by Jo Hill in the UK.


The lovely lampbase in the photographs was 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.

The beauty of turned plywood finished with a natural wax whilst on the lathe brings out the absolute understated beauty of this material.
