The Patrick Kavanagh Collection was created by three Monaghan designer makers, where each piece was envisioned and made with passion in their Monaghan craft studios.
Textile designer and handweaver Liz Christy, fused glass artist Grace Brennan and batik artist Louise Loughman were inspired by the poet Patrick Kavanagh.
Kavanagh’s intimate connection with the Monaghan landscape, as expressed through his poetry, provided each designer with a rich source of inspiration for their creations in this collection. The clovers, heathers and earthly palette of the drumlin landscape, is all subtly reflected in this contemporary collection, neatly echoing the poet’s descriptions of nature, love and life’s journey.
Rich, woven textiles and gifts, vibrant glass designs with bursts of colour and enchanting silks featuring words of poetry are recognisable in every piece.
