Irish Landmark Trust
I loved this commission - it was for the Irish Landmark Trust. I was given the brief for a set of letter knives with the suggestion of a hand trowel and they completely let me run with my own design. I wanted to really engage with who they were and reflect the importance of their work in Ireland. They consist of naturally felled Irish wood turned handles, forged silver trowel with hand engraving, and a series of different co-ordinates in silver for iconic properties they have conserved and sustained. The cloth bags I hand stitched with natural irish linen and a cotton ribbon with a silver grip.
