Blue Iris Design Lampshade

Blue Iris Design Lampshade
Love this


25cm diameter drum lampshade featuring a unique cyanotype print design. The cyanotype technique uses the sun's rays to form the design. Ferns and iris plants were placed on the coated fabric and left in the sun. When washed the fabric became a beautiful cyan blue where the light had hit the fabric but remained the original pale colour where the objects had been placed. The fabric will not change colour further as the process has now been finished. The fabric has been neatly had rolled onto a white flame retardant lampshade backing.

This lampshade is a beautiful colour but also shows the cyanotype effect more dramatically when the light is switched on.

The lampshade is suited as a table or floor lamp shade and has been finished on the reverse seam with a jute yellow organic string.

Diameter - 25cm
Height - 29cm
60W bulb recommended

The lampshade ring suits a standard UK 25mm light fitting but can also be easily converted to suit a larger European style 40mm light fitting by squeezing out the attached convertor plug (very easy to do).

The lampshade will be wrapped in a protective cellophane wrapping for protection during delivery and this should be removed before use.


I had been dying to use the cyanotype technique - it took a few attempts but I knew the effect would work really well as a lampshade. The technique reminded me of learning photography developing at college and I can't wait to experiment more when the sun eventually returns.
