This is my latest craft project, a birthday gift for a bird lover! The base of the lamp was hand made by the lovely people at Studio Australia in Wagga Wagga. The shade uses fabric that I designed and hand screen printed and have been saving for just the right project. The repeat pattern of the fabric features an image of my cockatiel surrounded by bird seed and seemed appropriate as the crowning glory for this cockatoo!
I am a textile artist based in Melbourne Australia. In another life, I ran a florist shop "Rare Petals". Both crafts take some inspiration from ancient Japanese techniques- my flower shop concentrated on ikebana, and my current craft practice explores shibori, in particular on knitted felt.
