£650
Oak Leaf Lampshade is a contemporary piece by multidisciplinary London-based artist Lora Avedian, which is inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement and the Bloomsbury Group.

Influenced by Arts and Crafts era print designs and Charleston Farmhouse in Sussex, this lampshade is typical of Lora's work, which often translates elements of narrative into stitch. Hand-cut oak leaves sit on rusty orange linen for this piece, reflecting the season of autumn.

Process

Each element of this piece was crafted and stitched into place by hand. The leaves are made from hand-cut silk-velvet, while the acorn-shapes are created using vintage millinery techniques that involve curling cord to create a spiral. These elements are then hand-embroidered onto the linen shade.
