What are the chances? (actually 1 in 30 think!) Jane and I were drawn to work together for the second year in a row on a collaboration of fashion and traditional craft skills – promoted by the Council of Irish Fashion Designers and the Design & Craft Council of Ireland. Jane Murtagh is a wonderful Blacksmith and our challenge was to create a piece using both the lightest and heaviest of materials – silk and metal!
This is the piece we made, modelled here beautifully by Irma, on it’s one and only outing before lockdown. Hopefully, we’ll get to ‘show off’ in 2021.
