Papercrete Lamp + Block Shop Lamp Shade

This sculptural, whimsical lamp was made by Hopie Stockman in our Atwater studio from papercrete, and features a sunshiny face on one side, and a Block Shoppy squiggle dot pattern on the other side. Hopie took an existing vintage lamp base and cord, and built the sculpture around it using nothing but cardboard and papercrete. The lampshade is made from our beloved Mr. People Person fabric.

To make our block printed fabric, each design is traced onto a wooden slab, which then is carved by hammer and chisel into a printing block. The block is then printed meticulously by hand using soft, AZO-free, non toxic pigment.
Variation in printing & color are hallmarks of hand block printing and dyeing in small batches.
