Poppy Heads

by Martina Scott

l love how such a delicate flower can turn to a woody seed shaker, like a pepper pot beautifully designed, tall and amazing. The seed heads create architectural forms & the religion of pattern has a modern simplicity.

Sunflower

€175

by Martina Scott

The inside of the sunflower is made up of an intricate formal pattern that I see everywhere in nature and how it reflects from a micro to universal scale. The setting sun inside the sunflower further reflects passing time and cyclicality of nature. The natural feel of the Irish linen creates a homely and soft groundedness.

Where to buy

The richness and variety of the changing seasons of the Irish landscape provide infinite patterns and forms for Martina to investigate and explore through her printed textiles.
