LET THE FUR FLY

 

Northern Irish artist and designer Rachel O'Neill works at the interface between art and design using a variety of tactile materials to create wonderfully playful one-off installations and limited edition pieces for corporate and private interiors and special events.

Taking much of her inspiration from the magnificent sea- and landscapes of her native Ireland, Rachel O'Neill's objects have a fluid, often amorphous visual quality redefining their purpose and shapes whether they are used as decorative lighting, wall- and floor coverings, body adornment or children's toys.

In keeping with the deep-rooted heritage of a rural society Rachel O'Neill loves working with her hands enjoying the challenge of transforming heavy-duty industrial textiles and fabrics into magically beautiful commisioned works of art or affordable design products.
