Our lamp featured in SA Home Owner

I am always super excited when my work gets noticed by the media! Especially more so when my design inspiration is considered a touchy subject!

Here is the printed text:

“Inspired by her return to the Western Cape, Lizl Naude’s slave bell desk lamp re-purposes discarded wood and tin cans to create a beautiful, functional homage to those who built this land from the ground up.”

 

I posted about the Slave Bell Lamp a few months ago. Read about it here.

Behind the scenes of CGTN Interview

What a crazy few weeks for Lilly Loompa!

Crazy but good! In April our work was picked up by an International News Bureau, Chinese Global Television Network (CGTN) and they visited our workshop in Cape Town, South Africa, to document what I do!

Here are some behind the scenes pictures, courtesy of my dear friend, Natalie Gabriels.

Testing!

 

A little bit more relaxed now!

 

Leon is such a great guy…made me feel really relaxed!

 

Get to work!

You feel so much pressure when people are watching you’re every move!

And that’s a wrap!

Julie Scheier is the correspondent who contacted me. Unfortunately she could not attend on the day. Leon Hagen who conducted the interview is such a great guy! He made me feel very relaxed and never once put pressure on me! A genuine nice guy…with almost 30 years experience in TV.

Here is a link to the segment:

It is certainly true that the TV adds a few pounds! Whoo-eh-eh! I blame these wonderful Cape Town koeksisters and my lack of discipline!

All in all…a wonderful experience. I am truly blessed!
