Waterford’s own “Metal and Ink” will be exhibiting in Creative Island at Showcase 2015, the first international trade event for ID2015 – a year long event promoting Irish Design.

Creative Island presents authentic Irish Craft products designed and made in Ireland and “Metal and Ink” is imagined, designed and made in The Little Design Shop on the Quay, in Waterford’s Viking Triangle.

“Metal and Ink” is the result of a collaboration between jewellery designers Stradbally Jewellery and printmaker Anne Mc Donnell. The collaboration came about when the two businesses were working alongside each other and their interest in the processes involved in their different crafts prompted them to try something different. Silver is etched, inked up and printed on cotton rich paper, and then mounted. The silver used to print the original etching is then transformed intoit’s companion piece of jewellery.

Last year, “Metal and Ink” were part of made “Made in Waterford”, supported by the then Waterford City Enterprise Board. This year, “Metal and Ink” are delighted to be chosen by The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland to be on Creative Island. If you are attending the Trade Show you will find them on stand C76 .
