6 inch Lampshade
“Path through the Dionis Dunes”


A 6 1/2″ tall lampshade with flat-top washer fitter.

The body of this lampshade is a 22″ wide, fine-art print of “Path through the Dionis Dunes” on heavy, 255gsm Somerset Velvet cotton rag paper, built with faux driftwood birch bands and tan jute twine, over off-white cotton, and decorated with rockweed and tiny scallop shells gathered from Dionis Beach.

The bands are distressed and “aged” with a home-made stain made from black tea, steel wool, vinegar, and pure raw linseed oil. The rockweed is dried and preserved with a thin coat of non-toxic white glue.

A shade of this size can be used on a small table lamp with a 6″ or smaller harp or on a small harpless lamp with a bulb clip adapter, and makes a nice accent or bedside lamp or hall nightlight. It measures 6 1/8″ from the bottom of the flat-top washer fitter to the bottom of the shade.
