[Hannah Nunn] has literally carved out a niche for herself with charming designs of cow parsley, dandelion clocks and other country themes that bring a real glow to people's lives. -- Anthony Hayward Horse & Countryside
About the Author
Hannah Nunn runs a successful practice as a designer and maker of paper-cut lighting. She sells her work widely in the UK and across the world through many craft galleries and interior design shops. Her lighting has appeared in national publications such as BBC Homes & Antiques, The Times and The Guardian Gift Guide and has featured on blogs such as Design Sponge and Apartment Therapy. This coverage, along with her website and Etsy shop, has helped her build a customer base across the globe.
Her own practice as a lighting designer sparked a passion for handmade lighting and in 2005 Hannah opened her shop Radiance in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, to showcase some of the exceptional makers using light to bring their craft to life. She has her design studio at the back of the premises and enjoys the balance between sourcing and making beautiful work for the shop. Hannah has always loved to tell the stories behind the designs and writing Illuminate has given her the opportunity to do just that and further champion the work of many designers working in the field.
Hannah lives in Hebden Bridge with her partner, two children and three cats.

There isn't one. This ladder is shaky. Because lighting and lampshades, no matter their method of manufacture or material, are admired and respected according only to our individual tastes and knowledge. No better is this illustrated than within the pages of Hannah Nunn`s book Illuminate Contemporary Craft Lighting. Divided into eight chapters covering materials such as ceramics, textiles, metal and glass, the breadth and scope of the lighting here demonstrates the diverse and inspiring world of other people's lighting creations... who's to say that one is any better than the other?
Check out Heather Gillespie`s cut and engraved hand-blown glass pendants, or David Trubridge`s coral and floral lights made using bamboo plywood, or Isabel Stanley`s ribbon bound shades, or Scabetti`s stainless steel shoal installations swimming overhead. Not forgetting the classic neutral drum lampshade by Quincy Lampshades sitting atop a Ken Eardley lamp base (sometimes, shades just have to be plain).
