1-20-2011 -It’s a shade! I just have to put the jute rope trim on and it’ll be finished. the photos were taken using natural light…the shade design will show up a lot more when the lamp is put together and turned on. Photos to follow.


1-15-2011 – After allowing the paper to uncurl for a few days, I have cut out the shade pattern and transferred the design onto the back sid eof the shade. Today I’ll start cutting the design.

The design has been transferred onto the back side of the shade.

I make the cut and pierced shades for these lamps, and have a couple of designs that I like to use. Here’s one design on a completed lampshade:

Here’s the newer design with a lobster boat instead of a sail boat.

  1. Superb job- love the overall design. Did you use an X-Acto blade to cut the shade? What is the material?

    • Thank you, Donna. Yes, I I use an X-Acto blade to cut the design, a stylus type tool to open up the straigh and slightly curved lines and shape the deeper curves by hand. The shade is a heavyweight textured paper, like a watercolor paper.
