Inspired by nature in beautiful Shropshire. Bespoke hand designed homeware, retro mid-century style hand printed in studio. DJ Lobster makes and creates...
I design from my natural surroundings but sometimes with an occasional lobster thrown in!
I had a dream once, I was DJ' ing at a party, I was a Lobster spinning the decks with my claws....this is true and where some of my ideas come from. I pride myself on my creative journey, how the idea develops, and re developed over a fastidious period. I stay true to traditional methods of art, including hand burnishing every lino print. Designs are taken through to Giclee print.
All designs are created from my own photography, of homegrown produce in the garden or my natural surroundings.
Having taught Art for many years, I have renovated and re-designed my own home making me a little Interiors obsessed. I make my own homeware range; Lunar and Lobster.
Its not everyone's cup of tea! But it's certainly mine....
British designed and handprinted retro homeware handmade in beautiful Shropshire. Hand drawn from nature with the occasional lobster thrown in!
All designs are hand drawn and truly unique. I use only traditional hand burnishing methods with Japanese handmade papers. Designed from my surroundings in beautiful Shropshire and the journeys I take, all designs are from my own photography which is then hand draw at home or my art classroom surrounded by acres of woodland and rolling wheat fields. The design is edited by hand and the then carved out of lino and hand printed with lino print reduction printing methods and hand burnished using traditional oil based printing inks.
I have a slight obsession with lobsters which often get thrown in!
I think it's from my dream I was called 'DJ Lobster, I was DJ' ing at a party, spinning the decks with my claws'
My style is retro inspired. I re-wire, up cycle old lamp bases and sources beautiful hand blown recycled glass bases. More recently, I've expanded my range into lino printed surface pattern based on my hometown of Shrewsbury and Charles Darwin.
Every range has a story.
All products are delicate, homemade and hand packaged with recycled materials.
Each product is slightly different due to being hand printed. Due to the attention to detail, turn around of hand printing a new bespoke product in oil based ink, drying time and production can take up to 4 weeks.
Giclee Printed lampshades on Calico take 2 weeks.
I recommend for best lighting to use a LED filament bulb.
