It began as a project in her senior year at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002, but creating her unique and colorful lamp collection soon became Heather Wells' full-time job! Using drink umbrellas collected from friends and local restaurants, each of Wells' handmade creations is truly a one-of-a-kind piece. Heather had so much fun designing and handcrafting these lighting fixtures, she couldn't help but make it her calling.
Made In The Shade
Transport your favorite nook to the tropics with Heather Wells' festive, cocktail-inspired nightlights. The shade is made from tiny cocktail umbrellas, which she collects from friends and restaurants. She coats them in a protective resin and dips the tip of each one in phosphorescent paint, so they continue to shine like little stars once the lights are turned out. Shade handmade in Massachusetts; nightlight base and components made in China. Treated with a fire-resistant seal. Requires 5W bulb, included.
Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.Exclusively at UncommonGoods.
