Artist Iris Hippelle re-creates the wilderness of nature in her textile art. Her silk and linen pieces are decorated ornamentally with botanic imprints using perennials, wild flowers from the meadows, weeds and vegetables and each piece is an original.
For the last two decades her work has been recognised internationally and is collected not just in Ireland but in countries as diverse as Switzerland, France, Australia, Japan and the USA. Her work also includes original hand painted behind glass clocks and CD clocks inspired by nature.
This January you can meet Iris at Showcase, Ireland’s Creative Expo. This is your chance to stock up on unique, design-led products for 2013. Meet over 350 exhibitors – many you won’t find anywhere else.
Six of the Leitrim Design House makers are exhibiting at Showcase 2013 under the umbrella of Leitrim County Enterprise Board. Iris Hippelle, Jonathan Ball, Jo Gray, Louise Rice, Roy Humphreys and Celtic Flame Candles. We wish them all a very successful show
