Commissioned Diamond Shade – The Theme is a traditional moody landscape painting. Handmade by Jeremy Walton, using the craft ebook JW006 Diamond Shade.
‘Billedskolen i Tvillingehallen’ commissioned the making of a Diamond Shade for their meeting room. I based the lamp on traditional landscape painting, (rectangle landscape, green at the bottom, moody sky at the top). Besides coloured paper I used old books about planes, so parts of planes now fly through the sky. In referance to the history of Tvillingehallen, the building was once a slaughterhouse, I found an appropriate book and used it to make the sky a little overcast and to dot the landscape with cattle.
The Art School is for children and young adults who come into the school on different days of the week. I set up the Silent Circus in the entrance and slowly made the lamp, spread over a week, so all the students got to see the lamp in progress. I then had to take it home to finish it, these things are not quick to make, plus the children kept interrupting me.
Besides me making a lamp for the school, I also introduced the JW006 E-craftbook to the Wednesday 5 o’clock class, who all made their-own Diamond Shade lamps over the following couple of Wednesdays. I’ll post the results of that separately.
Almost forgot, this lamp can be downloaded as an craft e-book, So you can make your own.
