Commission: ‘The Gift’, 2020, Awarded by the Clare Arts Office and Creative Ireland.

The series of ceramic plates, based on the four seasons, were created to be gifted to those who have shone a light in Clare during COVID 19. The isolating effect on family and community was balanced by the kindness and care shown by friends, neighbours, and the healthcare service.

The seasonal rhythms continue as normal and are a ray of hope for many. The use of plants and foliage throughout is symbolic of change, energy and hope. The series of four designs are linked by season and the renewed optimism they bring.
