Whatever one says about a retail goliath like Brown Thomas versus a local independent, there’s no doubting that having your work on display there sends a little rush of prestige coarsing through creative veins.
And attendant parents will think you’ve really made it.
In association with Design Ireland, Brown Thomas have a pop-up shop hosting 13 Irish designers this summer.
The newbies include monochromatic prints by me&him&you; glass wall art by Black Hen Designs; copper and glass homewares by Gilded Hound; hand-poured candles by Field Apothecary; occasional furniture by Cooper Handcrafted Furniture; understated tableware by John Ryan Ceramics, luxury soaps and scents by The Burren Perfumery and porcelain vessels by Adam Frew. Lets hope those tourist dollars and yuans wing their way.
Runs until Sunday August 19th at Brown Thomas (Level 3) with ‘Meet the Makers’ between 2pm and 4pm on weekends.
