Cyanotype is a 19th century photographic method of printing, producing a beautiful cyan-blue print. Also known as a ‘blue print’ or ‘sun print’. Traditionally the process was used as a simple way to reproduce photographs, maps, and technical drawings.

•Each one is individually printed by me, Claire in Bristol
•Each lampshade is unique and are individually cyanotype printed so slight variations may occur
•Despite being a light sensitive process, once the print is fixed they are very light fast and should not fade. I have one in a south facing window for over a year and it’s still vibrant blue.
