A Cork artist bagged a valuable award this month in recognition of her remarkable skills. Multi-talented Sarah Roseingrave, based in Macroom, received the Future Makers' Exhibition Support Award worth €1,000 for her creative work in glass, ceramics and print making at a ceremony in the Westbury, Dublin on 12 July.

The award was given by the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland as part of their Makers Awards & Supports programme, one of the largest of its kind in Europe.

Judges Claudia Casali, Director of International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza in Italy, and Philip Hamilton, Creative Director of Perch in Dublin, had the formidable task of assessing a record 191 applications.

The expert judges said: “Sarah’s work demonstrated an interesting use of glass panels and craft of screen printing assembled in a 3D perspective forming a great platform for storytelling.”

Karen Hennessy, Chief Executive of the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland, said: “The programme is one of many initiatives that the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland has established to provide practical supports to emerging creatives in developing their skills, evolving their practice, promoting their work and building careers both in Ireland and abroad.

“Investing in the development of the next generation of Ireland’s designers and craftspeople through our Future Makers programme is crucial in order to create a pipeline of talent and pave the way for a strong, dynamic and innovative design and craft sector into the future.”
