Showcase Ireland – Handmade
AS the first ever online Showcase Ireland event winds to its virtual close Pynck.com has had a fantastic time exploring all of the talented exhibitors that have been within easy reach in cyberspace at https://www.showcaseireland.com. With just one more day to go before the unique event concludes on 29 January, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to explore a carefully curated selection of handmade products, and all of them among the Design & Craft Council of Ireland.
Wall art designs by Alanna Plekkenpol are based in the Dutch Delft tile tradition in contrast with a sense of fun using digital illustration and collage in their creation. All of the products are designed in the maker’s home studio in Wicklow Ireland.
Handweaving Donegal tweed has been going on at Studio Donegal on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way since before the Industrial Revolution and everything at the Kilcar mill is woven by hand.
Every piece created at Castle Arch Pottery is inspired by a tradition of storytelling over a cup of tea and a plate of scones, or dinner shared among family and friends and the Kilkenny Ireland-based makers design heirloom pieces for the contemporary lifestyle.
Irish by nature, Bare Essentials skincare products are naturally beautiful and made to pamper, soothe and scent. Inspired by beauty of Ireland’s land, seas and skies from the scent of a summer rain shower to a hazy August evening and the crisp morning frost of winter and the delicate perfumes of spring, the ever-changing seasons are in every design and packaging.
