From The Ground Up

Inspiration for the collection is the Dublin streetscape and the challenge to the  observant eye to discern beauty in the mundane. The pieces are inspired by manhole covers and the variety in their design, ranging  from Victorian to modern. The choice of citrine reflects the predominance of the  colour yellow in the city streetscape and signage. Its use emulates light falling and  reflecting on the many city surfaces. It echoes the glitter of broken glass,  transforming quotidian detritus to hidden jewels. The choice of CAD and 3D printing was reflective of the industrial nature of the  source of inspiration.
