About

Plants, flowers and all things that light up!

When I started making paper cut handmade cards 15 years ago I didn't know that it was going to lead me down such a rich and illuminating path. I was always holding my paper cuts up to the window to enjoy the silhouettes and one day, a friend in my studio suggested I make lights. In that moment I saw my whole range flash before me! I applied for Arts Council funding to research the idea and after much cutting and sticking my first lamp was born. I launched my collection at the British Craft Trade Fair and came away with much positive feedback and a handful of galleries who wanted to stock them! Yes! :)

It grew from there. I carried on making and selling and expanding my range and whilst visiting trade shows with my lights I found myself always drawn to other light makers. I thought it would be amazing to open a shop which would bring them all together in one beautiful glowing space. In 2005 I opened Radiance in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. I had my workshop in the back of the shop and I enjoyed the balance between creating and sourcing lovely work for the shop www.radiancelighting.co.uk . Recently I have moved my studio out to bigger premises with lots of windows (that was a dream of mine) and I have just expanded my product range with a collection of wallpapers and fabrics. It's ever so exciting!

My passion for lighting got spotted by an editor from Bloomsbury Publishing and I was commissioned to write a book about contemporary craft lighting. It was an amazing project. I interviewed 45 lighting artists worldwide and collected gorgeous pictures of their creations. It's called 'Illuminate' (look out for many Etsy lighting designers inside).

I live in Hebden Bridge, a steep sided wooded valley in West Yorkshire and it couldn't be more perfect for me. It is rich in woodland, meadows and fields and I spend a lot of time walking with my camera collecting inspiration for my work. I love that it is the best of both worlds. Great nature spots but also a busy bustling creative town full of fab independent shops. It's great to be part of this community.

I think Etsy is the best thing on the internet! I have made many wonderful discoveries here and it has helped me to reach more people across the world. I never tire of sending my lamps to far flung corners of the Earth.

I keep a blog www.hannahnunn.blogspot.com where I share tales of inspiration, works in progress, adventures, and walks in the woods. Hope you'll come and say hello.
