About My Design

The ideas for my lampshades came to me some years ago, but it was only last year that I decided to turn thoughts into reality.

My inspiration comes from all around, but one source that does inspire me is the aircraft I work on in my day job as an aircraft engineer. The big engines of Boeing 747s and 777s have a certain sort of grace and symmetry which I find satisfying to look at. Other sources come from the world of nature, I recently holidayed on the Queensland coast where on a beach walk on Coochiemudlo Island, we came across the flower of the orange mangrove, I have designed two lamps based on this little flower.

I have named my lampshades after small towns and villages that I have been lucky enough to visit and holiday in over the thirty plus years that I have been back in NZ, most of the names are from Northland and The Bay of Plenty.

I have more designs planned, and I will bring them into fruition over the course of the coming year, watch this space.
