Welcome to the Buffy Robinson website. Here you can see the largest ever collection of my Batik work. My canalside Gallery in Shropshire is open by appointment, so please email me if you would like to arrange a visit and I would be happy to show you around.


'Cat in the Moonlight' lampshade






'Cat in the Moonlight' has always been my best-selling design and yet in all these years I have never been asked to make a 'Cat in the Moonlight' lampshade until now.



Although very intricate and time-consuming, I must say I have thoroughly enjoyed  this commission.





In order to make the design work, I have adapted the original drawing slightly, putting the cat and moon on one panel and the church on another.









The village with its cottages, some with lit-up windows and a back-drop of fields and sheep, continues all around the shade.

My customer's coming to pick it up next week and I won't want to let it go.  I LOVE it!

It all took a ridiculous number of hours (best if I don't start adding them up) so this may well be a one-off!





'Irises & Dragonflies' Lampshade



The Art Nouveau Iris & Dragonflies design, which I originally did as a framed backlit picture, is now adapted to work on a lampshade.








The design covers the three panels at the front of the shade.  The other three at the back are marbled with the distinctive 'Batik' crackle in blues and greens.



The crackle effect gives the feeling of movement in the water and is used to give detail to the dragonflies' wings.








The irises and foliage in the 'whiplash' Art Nouveau style, create natural borders each side of the 'Dragonflies' centrepiece.


This 'Irises & Dragonflies' lampshade(10"dia x 8"tall) is For Sale in my Gallery for £250
