Visit: Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum
When you think of design, think Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York city. It’s quite impressive. Founded in the latter part of the nineteenth century by the granddaughters of industrialist Peter Cooper and Cooper Hewitt, the space is housed in the mansion of Carnegie, and the best part is it’s on the Museum mile… With four floors of design, collection and interactive learning resources, it will have you advancing your culture curve! With a huge digital library, it was refreshing to revisit my items once I left and wanted me back for so much more… The museum offers an abundance of lectures, special exhibits, lectures and hands-on workshops. Stop in and explore, the architecture and staircases alone are well worth the viewing.
Medium: Pottery et al
Another Irish artist on my trek to Ireland this past spring I discovered was Louise Browne.
She has always had a passion for making things… It wasn’t until 2007 that she followed her dream to make art and porcelain a better way of life. With several studies in design, textiles, metal and glass; it was pottery she specializes and holds interest in. Her work is organic with floral details. It’s feminine and soft.
