CODE: BULLFINCH LAMPSHADE
This beautiful lampshade features a pair of bullfinches perched on the ivy, inspired by the view from my garden studio. The ivy berries in winter attracted a colourful array of birds and these bullfinches were regular visitors.
I created the original, handmade bullfinch 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.
This lampshade is an excellent reproduction of the original embroidery, and produces a gorgeous, warm glow for any room in the house.
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 design is a high-quality print on velvet of my original Bullfinch design in stunning coral, blues and greens. 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 the design is an elegant and refined interpretation in stitch of a male and female bullfinch. 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! Bullfinch cushions, lanterns, coasters and placemats are also available.
