Fox Linocut Cylinder Lampshade
Fox -Sionnach as Gaeilge - Clever yet Cute !
LINOPRINTING - This lampshade is hand printed using a technique called Linoprinting. First I sketch an image onto linoleum, which I then carve out in relief. Adding paint onto the lino relief design, I print onto the lampshade while it is flat. After drying I assemble the cylinder lampshade.
This lampshade, has a simple and rustic print of a Red Fox, or Sionnach / Madra Rua as Gaeilge. I was inspired to do a Fox linoprint, from our resident fox on our laneway, who cheekily says hello to us, before jumping into the hedge just as we drive past. But our hens are well protected by Rex our border collie.
The background colour is painted in grey, with a hint of purple and gold, with the fox painted in red/orange with a flashes of black and white. The Fox Linocut design is hand printed onto a Cylinder lampshade - ideal for a bedside or living room table lamp, or a ceiling light.
IMPORTANT: Make sure you select the right fitting, whether the lampshade is for a lamp (table or floor lamp), or as a ceiling light, as the assembly is different. Any questions email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: as each lampshade is individually hand printed, there may be variations in colour and design.
NOTE: All my designs can be modified to suit your home, and your colour scheme. Just send me an email or give me a call, and we can discuss options.
