DESIGNED & CRafted in IRELAND
Flow is inspired by the patterns in the lakes and landscape of Westmeath.
Each layer of this beautiful landscape is rich in pattern and each has a story of formation, like the ringforts that are scattered across the fields. These fortified settlements, dating back to the Bronze Age, were once strong holds for the Neolithic people but now they are stunning circular mounds that when viewed from above create these concentric patterns. Combined with the ever flowing landscape this collection is designed using the patterns of the land whilst keeping a close connection to the Celtic heritage that Ireland is renowned for.
Flare is inspired by all the small connections we make with people in our lives.
Each point of a triangle represents the relationship we have with different people and how they in turn have an association with others. It is these small links that tie us all together, weather it be a friend or a stranger on the street, we all in small way intersect with one another throughout our lives. This range captures the pattern and connection of different relationships as they flourish. Like a Flare it starts small, expands and grows, similar to friendships we make through the course of our lives.
Fusion is a range based on the city scape of Dublin.
I studied in Dublin for five years and have many family ties to the city and it was over these years that its buildings and architecture that inspired the collection. I loved the way the buildings over-lapped and jutted out from each other. Through simplified sketches I took the Central bank in Temple bar and its surrounding buildings and abstracted them to create this geometric range.
