Artistic lamps by Alex Randall

I was eight years old when I created my first lamp. At the time and even now it didn’t seem unusual to me, coming from a family where most things were hand made it wasn’t a big deal. Twenty-or-so years (and electric shocks) on, there doesn’t seem to be much of a chance of stopping.

People often question me about my decision to use taxidermy in my work, but I always say that it is an ethical design choice. What it comes down to is my absolute abhorrence for waste, particularly when there has been such energy put into its creation. All of the animals I use are taken from culls that are used to control various populations. For example, the grey squirrels that are not indigenous to the UK are culled in order to allow other native species a fighting chance.
