Artist Gail Hammer- LAMPSHADES

Greetings friends,


Today my post is on my good friend Gail, who is an awesome artist that has taken her art to a whole other level. She first applied her natural art abilities to photography, and has now evolved her photography into lampshades.
Gail’s  lampshades are created from her own photography.  The images are printed onto  linen/cotton fabric or photographic art paper and applied to different shapes of lampshade frames culminating  in a unique and original piece of art.


Most of you know from my Facebook pictures that I love horses! I purchased the following lampshade and I'm truly enjoying it. Gail actually rode this horse in the past, and this was a picture that she took of the 
horse and made this brilliant lampshade!

Not only is this unique lampshade a great conversation piece during gatherings, it is also a useful piece of art which is gorgeous and practical.


Gail is meticulous with her art and does not scrimp on the quality of her supplies. Take a close look at the trimming. This picture does not give justice to the quality, but in person one could truly see the quality of the supplies that has been used to construct this great piece of art. 






Gail can also personalize her lampshades. Just imagine looking your at your favourite piece of art, but instead of the creation being something outside of your experiences it could actually illuminate the face of your child, your pet, a place you visited and more. 


If you are looking for an original piece to add to your home, office or business decor, or have been seeking the perfect gift for that hard to please person, contact Gail. You will not be disappointed. Her unique lampshades will light up your life!
