I’m delighted to say that Rodrigo, my miniature teapot, is in London at the moment as part of an exhibition curated by Brian Kennedy called “Feast of Silver” in Fortnum and Mason.
I’ll be on Bobby Kerr’s Down to Business tomorrow. I’m going to be on a panel with Kieran Comerford CEO of Carlow County Enterprise Board and Mark Craddock MD of Maven TM. I’ll be talking about the importance of the CEB to a SME like mine and about the new Carlow craft group that I’m involved with, Form.
The final countdown to the RDS National Craft and Design Fair is on, and this time next week my stand, B6 on the Balcony, will be all set up and the show will be starting!
To get a sneak peek at many of the wonderful goodies available, including several pieces of beautiful handmade jewellery from yours truly (see pages 11 and 17), go have a look at the Gift Guide. My Confluence necklace (shown below) will also be available to view in the Crafts Council’s gift area in the centre of the main hall.
I’m very excited to be showcased in both of these this year.
In good news I still have a limited number of tickets available for entry on either Wednesday 4th or Thursday 5th of December. To snag yourself a pair please comment below.
My new packaging arrived Friday and I’m dying to share it with you all
It’s all beginning to feel a bit like Christmas as I make my final preparations for the Glucksman Craft Fair next weekend Nov, 8th, 9th and 10th in Cork.
You can print off an invite to the opening night below, or you can print off admission tickets for the weekend saving yourself 5 euro.
Two my pieces – Pod Cluster and Gold Ring, pictured below – will be on display in Designworks Studio, Cork, as part of the Graduate Goldsmith and Jewellery Maker Exhibition. All of the graduates from the Jewellery & Goldsmithing Training Skills Course will have work on display, so it will be an great exhibition. Hope you enjoy it!
Earlier this year I entered four pieces of my work in the RDS National Crafts Competition, and two of them (Rodrigo and the Pod Cluster, shown below) have been selected for display in the Student Art and National Crafts Exhibition that is part of the Dublin Horse Show from 15th to 19th of August. Make sure to visit the Crafts Exhibition if you visit the Horse Show, and maybe you’ll buy some of the beautiful work on display.
It has been a busy week of exciting developments – I have been picked as one of Eircom’s Featured Start-Ups for 2012! Here is the video we made:
