The Ballyloskey Collection was inspired by my Grandmother "Maggie Mc Closkey", from the townland of Carndonagh, County Donegal, Ireland. She was my maternal grandma or as we say in Ireland" my mammys mammy".

We visited once a year during the summer months. My grandparents sourced water from a "Well" at the bottom of the field. I patinated the copper to look like the patterns of algae on the surface of the crystal clear water.
