Acquisition for National Museum of Ireland!

Was delighted to learn that a joint purchase between Design and Craft Council of Ireland and the national Museum of Ireland has resulted in the ‘Ruby’ vessel (pictured in the middle) being acquired by NMI for the collection. Many thanks to Mary at the Blue Egg Gallery in Wexford for putting on such a great exhibition that they were tempted and viewed in such a great light!
