An elegant handcrafted table lamp inspired by the beautiful purple Allium flowers in maker Hannah’s Mum’s garden. The flower head is laser cut engraved into creamy coloured parchment paper with really intricate detail. After the designs are laid out they are laminated for strength and durability. Having this lamp in your home is a great way to bring alliums inside the house (without the smell) and be reminded of the summer all year round.

I was so excited when I discovered Hannah Nunn’s beautiful designs on Instagram. With her love of nature, wild meadow flowers and seedhead designs, I have definitely found a kindred spirit. From Leeds originally, Hannah found inspiration in the countryside when she studied ‘Crafts’ at Carmarthen college in West Wales. She lived in Laugharne for many years, raising two small children, sketching and drawing in the fields and woodland and gathering ideas. When her children reached school age they moved back up North to Hebden Bridge where Hannah joined a studio space and started making paper cut greeting cards first that led on to making lamps when she saw the beautiful silhouetters her paper cut designs made if you held them up to the light.
She has since written a brilliant book called Illuminate all about contemporary craft lighting. It captures over forty ‘light-bulb moments’ telling the tales of many designers, ceramicists, furniture makers, blacksmiths and illustrators, all of whom were going about their business when one day something happened: they discovered light! She has gone on to design a range of fabrics, wallpapers and window films. She is a truly inspirational woman!
