On asking a client if I could use her comments for PR purposes she replied:
"Of course I don't mind you using my comments. We did look at cheaper globes but there was no comparison for an investment piece.
During the day the globe blends really well with the other two globes and at night well it just takes centre stage and gives the pefect glow to lighting our entrance.
Thought you may appreciate a photo of our globe with the full moon in the sky..magical...Thankyou for your inspiration.
"The 2 x Finial lights have arrived and are exactly what we were looking for, these will certainly enhance the new entrance to our Guest House when the ground works are completed. We have already done a test in the garage to see the effect.
Appreciate the "Beautiful" items supplied."

"Thank you again, Joanna!! Your globes have truly MADE our house glow in the most special way.
J. Altamar. Chevy Chase, U.S.A
"The globe lights arrived and the people who were installing the gates whilst we were away also installed the finial globe lights. I have to say they look fantastic and I am very happy indeed. They are in keeping with the stone in the day and wow do they come into their own in the dark, they look amazing! Thank you so much and I would definitely recommend these lights to others."
"Just had to drop you a line to tell you I am absolutely delighted with my new globe light. I was a little unsure when it first arrived as it was so light but as soon as it was fitted onto our pillar, all doubt was completely dispelled. The globe looks very realistic when doing its job as a stone sphere adornment during the day then completely transforms itself into a magical "full moon" light at dusk. We have had many admiring comments both during the day and at night. I would also like to thank you for the great customer service and personal touch (becoming increasingly rare these days) you afforded us by sending us colour samples which proved to be crucial, as i would definitely have ordered the wrong colour without them. Fantastic, unique product and fabulous service! Delighted! Hoping to order another two globes for our main entrance, so will be in touch."
"The lights give me so much pleasure especially at this time of year. When the motion lighting pops on it always makes me smile, especially when I'm in a hurry to get home. I'm so pleased I pursued my dream!
Kate Clark, Newmarket
"As a garden designer, I am always looking for something a little bit different for my clients. I have used the Stone Globe Lights in a small garden where they look fabulous nestled in the planting alongside a path during the day. At night, they have been described as being like little moons, and the owner is thrilled with the effect. They look so realistic and are strong and robust. I have just taken delivery of a further six to put in another garden. I will definitely be using more in the future. Joanna Wallis is a delight to deal with, service is efficient and the delivery is prompt"

"Lights have arrived and all fitted, they look fantastic. I've had nothing but nice comments about them - I love it when I find something a little out of the ordinary and everyone loves them. Thank you."
"The globe lights you supplied blend perfectly with our granite gateposts by day, and give a lovely warm light by night. All my neighbours have commented about them! You would never realise that they were lights during the day. Very pleased with them."
David Esterson, Jersey
"Stone Globe Lights were a natural choice when I was looking for something architecturally relevant to install at Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons. Lighting around the guest car park needed to be discreet yet practical at night, while looking wholly appropriate during daylight hours. Stone Globes met that specific criteria and Joanna Wallis was both easy to work with and happy to customize the finish so the globes matched the surrounding stonework. I can thoroughly recommend both the product and its creator."
Mike Shackleton, Lighting Designer, Ornamental Garden Lighting - www.ornamentalgardenlighting.com
"The attraction of Joanna Wallis's globe lights is not only the remarkably authentic stone look by day and the glow of the globe by night, but also the price. The globe lights are significantly cheaper than their stone counterparts and far more interesting!"
Lt. Col. Robert Cartwright, LVO, Bursar Ibstock Place School
"As ornamentation, ambient and task lighting all rolled into one, they have vast design potential."
