New work in Draíocht from Brid O’Kane, the Limerick based freestyle machine embroidery artist. Bríd describes her work as drawing with thread on canvas. Freestyle machine embroidery is a contemporary take on a traditional craft. Her creations have evolved from a love of the simple sewing machine and a desire to create something unique. Spring Showers and Jumping in Puddles are inspired by the Irish weather”!!
It’s not such a bad day when your boat floats up from Clarina with beautifully rich, scented Homeland Candles now on sale in Draíocht.
Using a Vintage/antique theme, I started making candles many years ago as a hobby because my wife loves burning candles. It got to the stage in our house that whenever she went shopping more candles appeared around the house. The problem was that most of the candles purchased would burn badly, be smoky and the scent would be either overpowering or non-existent.
Our goal was to create a candle that was technically perfect. We sourced a variety of wax, wick, colour and fragrance from lots of different companies and started experimenting with combinations of mixtures and fragrances. After considerable time and effort we developed the perfect combination of raw material sourced from the best producers in Europe to finally create candles that burn clean and even, offering quality fragrance from the entire area of the candle and an unbeatable glow when burning.
Looks like Ludmila is spreading her wings, beyond Adare, Limerick and Ireland to the Knot Gallery, Seoul.
Original paintings and prints available in Draíocht make wonderful Christmas presents.
Three of these paintings are going to Seoul Korea where they will be exhibited downtown as an introduction of Ludmila Korol Art to Korea. I am very excited by the prospect afforded me by the wonderful family of Dae Hyun Ann. I feel very privileged to be accepted into such a talented family of pianists, poets, industrialists and art collectors
