Fuzzy Lamps are a multi-sensory experience that are both useful AND pieces of art, handmade in Portland Oregon.

Please contact me for custom Fuzzy Lamps. Fuzzy Lamps come in many shapes and a rainbow of colors. I create a custom piece with your color choices. Have a funky orange couch you’d like to decorate around or need a pop of color in the corner of the bedroom or living room? I would love to make that happen.

No two Fuzzy Lamps are the same. All Fuzzy Lamp shades are made of various paper materials placed over a standard Chinese paper lantern. The papers are cut to various sizes, depending on the size of the Fuzzy Lamp and the preference of the client, and then securely glued to the lantern.

Depending on if a Fuzzy Lamp is turned on or off it looks completely different. You might have a beautiful yellow and blue paper Fuzzy Lamp during the day, but when you turn the Fuzzy Lamp on at night it emits a beautiful blanket of soft green light into the room.

Creating Fuzzy Lamps started as a craft project. I then started to expand on that project. When I started losing sleep due to all the Fuzzy Lamp ideas running through my head I knew it was time to take the next step. The more Fuzzy Lamps I created the more I knew this is what I am supposed to be doing right now.

I'm inspired by colors and patterns. Everything from images on newsprint to vivid napkin patterns gets my creative juices flowing. I've lost track of how many times I've rushed home with some random paper item and made a Fuzzy Lamp out of it.

I am very lucky to have an amazing art community here in Portland whose advice and love have spurred me forward on this adventure.

I thank them all and I thank YOU for looking!
