Here I wanted to achieve two things that had a twisting motion, by photographing something in nature and something manmade, and from two neighbouring places.
The result of the design holds a talismanic feel, with the stone like structure against something green and earthy.
My design was initially created to appear on the Oxford Writers House website, at the end of 2017. To support a writers competition page, to celebrate Oxfordshire; to inspire writers. This is one of a series of four different designs.
Internal shade fitting: UK, Europe: The shade fits the standard bayonet cap (BC) and also with Edison Screw (E27) lamp holders (remove the converter plug in the centre of the fitting). US & Canada: unless otherwise stated, washer fittings (1/2" ring) will be used, for lamps that use a harp or vertical rod system.
Fabric design: The placement of the design, at the seam, may vary. This is because they are handmade and come in varying sizes, but will be set as 25cm high so to retain the scale of the design. However, for the 30cm shade the design, the height is set at 21cm, so design may slightly on top and bottom of shade.

Climbing the spiral staircase within the turret of St.Mary's Church, Oxford, I stopped to notice a blue neon glow entering through one of the arrow-slits. I thought it would make for an unusual shot.
The other, is of a tree I photographed, whilst on a walk through the woodland area, around the Abingdon Marina.
Comically, the tree looks like it's keeping its legs crossed (when nature calls), but the twisting shape was perfect for what I had in mind.
