Really happy to have new lamp shade colours and shapes.
We are really happy to have some new shade colours available as well as an overall new shade design. To add more options we have had a new shade shape made for our standard lamp. As with the current shade it is large but this one has a slight taper to it. The name for this shape/design is a French Drum and we feel it fit with our own designs very well indeed. We have also added to our colour range adding a new Yellow on linen with gold lining and a completely new colour of Aqua Blue with a copper lining which are both available in any of our shades. They have proved very popular. We will continue to introduce new colours as we seek to be ahead of the colour trends. Thanks to Jack Neville for the excellent shots
Thank you to Georgia – Georgia Lloyd Photography – for the photo session yesterday.
For a while now we have realised that, although we have some great shots of our product, we have been lacking shots of the process. We realised that we needed some professional shots of the workshop and me at work. We know that the appeal of the products is not just what it looks like but also the story behind it and how it is made. Obviously we are big on ‘made in the UK’, ‘Made locally’ and ‘sourcing our materials in an ethical way’ but we are not getting across the handmade side of the product and the ‘lovingly made’ approach. https://marklowe.co.uk/about/
Georgia was brilliant. We worked well together as I had made a list of the shots needed and she was also able to add her skill and knowledge to the style of shots taken. She took over 400 shots in total and will go away and edit these down to a manageable amount. She will also work on photoshop to edit the chosen one’s. So in the end we will have a really good set of photos we can use on the website and for all sorts of other promotional work.
Thanks again Georgia. We can’t wait to see the results.
We had a busy weekend at the end of June as part of the Handmade Oxford show. this is part of the Handmade Britain group who organised a few shows over the year and around the country.
We had a stand there and enjoyed meeting and talking to many people including customers as well as other stand holders.
It was a busy and well attended weekend with lovely weather.
I am sure we will be there again and at other show as well.
Just a short note to say that we’re looking forward to Handmade Oxford at the end of June. Thursday 27th June – Sunday 30th June.
Handmade Oxford – The International Contemporary Arts Festival
This will be our first major festival and we are looking forward to meeting and talking to lots of people and new customers.
More updates to come over the next few weeks.
