Studio Katrys is a lampshade shop where we create high end quality lampshades and reproductions and replacements.  We also do restorations of antique and vintage lamps and shades.  We can create vintage-look or modern style custom lamps and shades to your requests.

All our lamp shades are made by hand with love.  We can create any style shade in any type material to your request.  If you cannot make a decision on what you might want or need, our highly qualified designer will assist you. Each of our lampshades is inspected thoroughly for quality before shipment to you.

We have created lampshades from laminated photos and prints, fabric, parchment, gold and silver leaf, and hand-painting.  Styles we have worked in are:

Photo of Artist Katerian RysanekBorn in the historical part of Prague, Czech Republic, surrounded by monumental architecture, Katerina fell in love with the Gothic style. The arches, rib-vaulted ceilings and alchemical symbols still feel like being at home to her.

"When I paint all those old stone & wood creations, I get lost into timelessness and I like that!" Katerina says.

Katja has drawn and painted since her childhood. She graduated from the Institute of Applied Art in Prague in 1974. Since 1980, she has lived in the USA and continues to practice all types of art. She has worked in the interior design field since 1975, and specializes in custom hand-painted lampshades, lamps, and antique restoration.


Due to the unique nature of each creation or restoration, prices will vary from project to project but we think you will find our prices most reasonable for the quality and attention to detail we provide. 

For large projects we will gladly make “house calls”. Please contact us for information.   

Custom lamps can be created from any item (vases, statues, vintage kitchen utensils, whatever!).  We will not damage your precious collectible with lamp wiring, as we use a ‘French mount’ system for your unique custom lamp.

We also sell supplies to make lampshades: parchment paper, opaque paper, vynil, laminated vynil,trims, tapes, etc.

Please email us at with specifics of your request. We will keep in close communication with you throughout your project.
