Inspired by the extraordinary national collection of crafts and historical decorative arts of the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, Dublin, students of the Jewellery and Goldsmithing workshops at the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland in Kilkenny have sought to repurpose influences from the Museum collection within contemporary jewellery design today. The currently showing InForm exhibition and this catalogue are an invitation to explore and be inspired by historical objects from the National Museum's collection and by the new designs of contemproary makers. In this beautiful companion guide, participants of the project detail their interest in their chosen museum object and the techniques and ideas used to create new jewellery and ceramics. Their pieces, illustrated here alongside the historical objects, are a testament to the creativity and skills of past and contemporary makers in Ireland and across the globe.
