Fantastic Craft Market Weekend

Had a great weekend working at a local market. I have been so excited to try out new display ideas , and this weekend was perfect! Beautiful weather (miraculously) and fantastic company with the lovely Kay from https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ruby-Robin-Boutique/160463837308134

Heres a few snaps of my new display props and ideas I tested out before hand…

Gorgeous close up of my new owl happily perched on this rustic ladder display.

I just love the flowering Irish Hawthorne I picked out the garden.

Woodland Print Photography

Well I have been searching for inspiration for quite some time on how to capture the essence of my work in my photography. I wanted to show my little fuzzies in their natural environment and also where I spend most of my time. There is the most beautiful forest in Kerry, where all the birch has been stained a stunning copper colour from the sea air.

I just new this spot of closely knitted avenue of trees would be perfect. Had a different idea in mind though. The following are some fun images and images from the evening..

I was never one for hanging out my washing!!!

Fawn, Vintage deer

This close up is more faithful to the actual colours of the piece. The camera picks ups the stray strands esp across the black, that the eye doesn’t, but it shows the sensitive lines and tones of the piece.

This is  a unique piece for me i many respects. It’s twice the size of my larger pieces. The fabric used is both retro inspired and referencing the arts&crafts era and more modern in many respects. The mounting is polaroid-esque which gives the eye more room to notice the strong contrast between the fabric and the deer itself.

It’s given me lots of inspiration for a series of pieces this big, so keep watching. x

Just did a smaller A3 version of this…
