Handmade lampshades and textile homewares with bold florals and modern coastal designs.

I’m Alison Bick, a designer maker selling lampshades and textile homewares that I’ve made with fabric printed with my illustrations.
I’m inspired to create my designs from stories told by my Cornish family,  the hot bold tropical colours from my childhood in Vanuatu, and the shapes and patterns found in the natural world.
Using my illustration skills I design work that really comes from my heart – each illustration has a story behind it that is personal to me, but also is a commonplace memory or shared emotion.  I love to hear from my customers who will often share with me their favourite flower or stories with special meaning to them, their own stories of growing up by the sea, and why they decided on a particular design when choosing a lampshade.
This is a lovely review from one of my customers:
“If you are looking for the most beautiful, first class quality lampshades then this is the shop for you. Alison is an amazingly talented artist who makes and designs the lampshades. The designs are so attractive showing flowers and plants in a way you have never seen them before.  Alison is so friendly and helpful and goes the extra mile to make sure you get what you desire. My Auricula shade had me saying ‘wow’ over and over again.” 
I sell online via my website, but I would love to meet my customers in my studio at Krowji.  Look out for opening times and updates on my website, my mailing list and social media if you would like to arrange a visit to view my lampshades.
