A Northern Light
Claire create’s handmade paper lamps, lampshades, and homeware featuring her own hand drawn illustrations.
Her inspiration comes from the natural world, patterns and graphics. Each lamp, lampshade and candle cover is finished with a solid wooden ring that completes the natural and simple look of the product.
She grew up loving painting, art and creating things and she has always had an ongoing creative project of some sort, be that illustrating, painting and sewing. She always came back to illustration but felt something was missing as wanted to design something ‘physical’ that could sit in a home. She began to explore whether she could put her illustrations on lamps. However, in truth had no idea of how realistic or feasible her idea was, therefore she began to spend many hours researching how to make lighting and various homeware. She finally managed it and A Northern Light was created!
