Blooming Butterflies lampshade features lots of large colourful flowers with a variety of butterflies landing on them.
My felted artwork has been professionally photographed. Then the image has been printed with high quality inks onto linen fabric. I took the linen to another professional, also local to me to turn into a lampshade. The lampshade has a 20 cm diameter and is 18.5 cm tall it is designed for a lamp base rather than a ceiling shade.
The original of Blooming Butterflies was inspired by a visit to a family members garden over a holiday weekend. After spending a couple hours sitting amongst the flowers in their garden and watching all the busy insects I came home and created this piece. It was made out of wools and silk fibres that were wet and needle felted together by me. The original has sold but there are lots of gifts available with this design in my shop plus giclée prints of the whole design.
This is one of a kind and no other ones will be made in this size with this design.
