Material Poetry

Galway Arts Festival, Galway, Ireland 2010

Curated by Brian Kennedy, was the first in a series of exhibitions of contemporary craft & design from Ireland, facilitated by STUDIO practice and initially launched at the American Irish Historical Society in New York.

 

The exhibition focused on Irish makers whose work is influenced by ancient Irish architectural forms, the majestic Irish landscape, a deep-rooted knowledge and respect for techniques and a true understanding and love of material.

 

In addition to including work by 16 Irish craftspeople, MATERIALpoetry also featured pieces created as a result of first time collaborations between Irish designers and Irish product or craft designers at a studio level.
