Petit Ballerina 
The ‘ballerina’ lampshade holds a special place in the lexicon of lampshades and shade making history. Recognisable for its Edwardian silhouette, twist and frills, the ballerina shade marks a time when electrification led to a surge in the design and manufacture of light fittings for the home. Few people remain with the experience and dexterity to make the ballerina shade. Petit Ballerina draws expressively on the narrative of this iconic shade, simultaneously demonstrating the traditional skill of the Rakumba craftswomen, contemporary design and 21st century lighting technology.
