Back home safe and sound, and semi recovered after five great days at the National Crafts & Design Fair.
Thanks so much to all my customers & fellow craftspeople who made it such a successful, pleasurable show and worth all the hard work and tender feet!!
I’m back at the bench today getting orders and commissions out for Christmas. If you’re thinking of ordering anything do get in touch as soon as possible.
Looking forward to doing this fair tomorrow…
The invitations for this year’s National Crafts & Design Fair have arrived and I spy my new rose gold sentinel pendant on the back!
The invitations are for the Thursday the 3rd and Friday the 4th, so if you’d like a pair please email me with your postal address and I’ll post them to you next week.
Busy few weeks coming up …
I’ll be at the Lewis Glucksman Gallery Craft + Design Fair this weekend 13th-15th in Cork.
Sunday the 22nd I’ll be at the Inreda Christmas Fair in Clontarf Dublin.
And last but certainly not least the National Crafts & Design Fair at the RDS from the 2nd – 6th of December.
I’ve been selected again this year for the Glucksman Gallery Craft + Design Fair in November.
I love this fair. It has a beautiful location, the gallery staff are so helpful and a pleasure to work with, the customers have a deep appreciation for Irish craft and design and to top it all off Cork is a wonderful place to spend a weekend! Roll on the 13th of November!
Glucksman Craft + Design Fair – Friday 13 November 3 – 6pm Saturday 14 November 10 – 6pm Sunday 15 November 11 – 5pm
What a great week here in the studio!
On Friday, I delivered my first order of work to the IMMA Museum shop. I’m so happy to be able to say that a selection of my Halo, Confluence and Sentinel ranges are now available in Dublin and in such a beautiful space. So the next time you’re out to enjoy the art and take in a bit of culture do visit the shop!
The What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now exhibition opens on the 12th of September.
Over the last few months I’ve been pushing the development of my work and delving even deeper into the world of diatoms and radiolaria. These structures fascinate me and drawing on this inspiration to create balanced, intriguing forms while not using symmetry is both a challenge and a pleasure.

The studio is closing until the 4th of August for some much needed time off to relax and recharge.
I’m looking forward to participating in the FORM Designmade in Carlow pop up at the Kilkenny Arts Festival
on my return and I hope to see some of you there!
That’s it folks, the last orders have gone out, the studio has been cleaned and tidied, ready for January.
All that remains is to thank everyone, customers, friends, fellow makers and designers, especially the members of FORM Designmade in Carlow and Local Enterprise Office Carlow for another fantastic year. I’m already planning new and interesting work, shows and training for 2015!
The studio is now closed and will reopen on the 13th of January.
Have a Happy Christmas and best wishes for a prosperous 2015!
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.
