Dina Petrillo – Belfast Bay Shade Company
Dina Petrillo of Belfast Bay Shade Company brings her view of the natural world to her stunning handcrafted lampshades. “Over the years, I’ve worked in a lot of different 2D and 3D media across a considerable range of techniques. Each new way of working represents a curiosity—an urge to explore physical materials and the expressive languages they might yield. I am an inveterate prober, and the stuff of the world around compels questions and investigation—with each transformation of media, there’s the potential for new and compelling meaning—new significance,” the artist said.
