Shades to Remember by Polly Malby = Crafts in Oregon

Another adventure in Oregon was a visit to a local crafter, Polly Malby, who is a friend of my friends. She makes wonderfully creative lamp shades and lamps.

Such a sweet person, with a most excellent eye for colors and textures. Polly makes these unique lamps that are so pleasing. Here husband, Greg made the lamp stand, which is shown in the first photo with the parasol purple top. My friend Alan helps with the wrapping of the wire frames on the shades.

She has sold to McMinneman’s Edgefield, of Troutdale Oregon, mention in my last post. Polly makes special orders too.

Here are a few of her lamps that I took pictures of while visiting. The detailing is phenomenal. You can view more of Polly Malby’s lamps on her Etsy Shop.

Wishing you a peaceful day.

    Thanks for this info. I have been looking for a lampshade maker as I have some very old, very beautiful textile I want preserved.
