Collins Barracks Dish

16" Dish showing the entrance to the Collins Barracks Square and other structures of note in the complex. Collins Barracks houses the Decorative Arts section of the National Museum of Ireland, by whom this dish was commisioned.

William Blake Dish

16" dish I was commissioned to make by the Crafts Council of Ireland in 1992.The edge of the dish has inscriped around it, the first and last verses of Blakes, The Tyger.
Tyger Tyger,burning bright,In the forests of the night;What immortal handor eye,Could frame thy fearful symmetry?When the stars threw down their spears And water'd heaven with their tears:Did he smile his work to see,Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
