"The Crochet Collection"

As most of you already know I have been hard at it developing a new collection of lighting since joining The Malthouse Design Studio. Although I have had lights hanging in the Light Fantastic Exhibition since May, these models were just prototypes and mock ups of what was to come. I have finally got my finished "Crochet Collection" designed,made and currently on sale in The Malthouse Showroom in Distillery Court, North Circular Road.

The lighting collection was developed through my interest in how flat sheet material can be constructed into three dimensional form through a variety of techniques. The collection of pendant lights achieve their form through a technique of slotting 12 identical two dimensional modules together which have been sliced in a specific manner to create an overall sphere form. This form is create as a result of geometric mathematical systems. To add texture and pattern to the form, a photograph of Irish crochet has been digitally printed and transferred onto the plastic in variety of different colours. The story of my conceptual development can been seen here from a previous post.

Further to the printed crochet pendant lights, a selection of one off lace pendants have been developed as part of the collection also. Using recycled offcuts of lace from Siopa Rince, the same form has been repeat but using physical pieces of lace on plastic rather than a print. Sizes range from 200mm to 400mm for both printed crochet and lace pendants. Printed crochet pendant available in purple,teal,lime,black and grey. Other colours can be ordered and commissions for bespoke pieces are also available.
