Looking for the birds

Salvo Fair, Hertfordshire UK
At this years Salvo Fair look out for Guy Trench's latest reuse design. He has been making lamps from interesting old objects found at markets for many years, mainly using sports and hunting memorabilia. Taking reuse to another level, a granite base incorporating old binoculars has been teamed with a parchment paper lampshade covered in the feathers of guinea fowl, partridge, and pheasant. The feathers are salvaged by a business in Norfolk and handmade into lampshades. There are six different sizes ranging from wall sconce at £35 to large 20 inch shade at £195, although shades can be made to order in any size.
