Were loading up today to setup on Monday and Tuesday for #irishdesignworks2018 in Galway. This is a new beauty in the Xtable range of limited edition pieces. This one really does have a Galway connection as the stone base is pure west Connemara from Derrygimlagh. The patinated and heat treated copper legs hold up a pure Irish Elm top. This Xtable#11 of 50 is unique and costs just €1350. The #Mayor of Galway will open the show for us on Tuesday at 18.00 so if you can get to @Tribeton Merchant rd there will be some excellent pieces for discerning collectors of #IrishDesign#Sculpture#Glass#Lighting and #Furniture. If you #visitgalway for #giaf this July this show is a must.
The Pentagon table is one of our new small tables made from sheet aluminium, a piece of telecommunications equipment and a stained native sycamore on the base. It is due to travel to our forthcoming Galway show @tribeton where it will be on sale at 795 euro. Dimensions 56 x 56 x 43 high. See us next #irishdesignworks2018 17th to 29th July. #galway#giaf#table#design#metaltable. #bespoke.
A detail of one of my special sculptural pieces entitled 'Soles of the Sea' which features in our upcoming show @Tribeton#galway#Irishdesignworks2018#DesignIsland . These soles spent years on the wearer but also many years floating in the Irish Sea and were recovered on the North Dublin coastline.This piece is one of a few new pieces which have been shown in Dublin and will feature in Galway and London this Summer. The Galway show opens on the 17th July and runs till 29th July.Hope ye come and see it or even buy it.
Last weekend we took Currach na Sceiri out of the shed with my friends including Frank Kavanagh the most senior of our making crew at 85years young.We enjoyed a great day of varnishing and now look forward to skinning up the boat soon. This is a project I've wanted to do for some years now. After the winter months designing and making with a great crew of friends in Skerries we look forward to finishing and launching Currach na Sceiri soon.
Today see the behind the scenes process in making our #element lights. In this we pour resin into sealed ends of copper tubes to create cord grips for these # besjpoke lights we featured at recent shows in Dublin and Frankfurt. A lot of finishing work goes on to finish these components.
