Silk artist Karen O'Kane of Kokodesigns shares some of her recent work in progress in her studio in County Donegal.
New rectangular based hand painted silk table lights. This 'sand dunes" design is in stock and ready for immediate delivery, comes in a wooden presentation box so an ideal gift. #shorelinecollection #handpaintedsilk #madeinireland #madeindonegal
Exciting week in koko land, baby shed joined us, no longer will my lovely, long suffering customers have to fight around silk frames, paintings and all my creative mess, this will be my showroom shed, there is even a fancy "retro yellow" sofa heading towards Donegal. #loghouse #lotsofworktobedone
The struggle with ferns continues for me, I've tried these ferns so many times I think I'll be dreaming about them. Its very frustrating that my brush and the silk will not do what I want it to do. #thirdtimelucky # madeindonegal #intothewoods #handpaintedsilk
I made up a hand painted silk table light today in the studio, looks great when its lit, happy with it as part of my new collection #intothewoods #handpaintedsilk #handmadelampshades #bespokelampshademaker #handpaintedsilk #madeindonegal
Working on new collection for the past few weeks. "Into the woods" which will launch in September. This one is based on the Rhododendron found in our woodlands, hedges and gardens. #madeinireland #madeindonegal #handpaintedsilk #intothewoods #bespokehomeinteriors #bespokelampshademaker
Back in the studio this morning after a lovely break with the kids, but I was still making. This one still has a little bit of metallic detailing to go on #shorelinecollection #handembroidery #handpaintedsilk #madeinfrance. Taught my eldest to hand embroider as well, he was super addicted and was good for him on long journeys.
Recent hand painted silk wall art commissioned and off to Poland, it always feels such an honour to have your work sit in someone else's house but an added thrill when that house is so far away #handpaintedsilk #madeinireland #madeindonegal
More table lights waiting to go out for delivery tomorrow. Order book is closed until August. Watch this space as new showshed will be under construction. Can't wait for more space! #madeindonegal
