Eoghann undertakes a wide variety of tailored commissions. Bespoke designs start with a brief from an individual or company. Eoghann will explore who it is for, why it is being commissioned, what it is and where it is going. Drawing on the space, architecture or history of the wider area for inspiration.
The conversation may start with an email, a visit to our workshop or face to face meeting with Eoghann.
When designing Eoghann draws on decades of experience, an idea may come from a shape or feature seen in architecture or a landscape, or from exploring the history of the space. As this is developed layers are subtly added with meaning, materials, methods of making, movement and finish. Ideas are developed with sketching until a concept drawing is produced for the client. After discussion this is developed into the detailed drawings.
