Few other exhibitions boast a display of so many different skilfully crafted materials, ranging from paper, wax and glass to precious metals, stone, clay.

Members of the MADE in Kilkenny Collective have designed and created unique pieces and ranges –  exquisite new works forming collections of inspirational `centre pieces` and corresponding smaller works.
