The Swirl Collection

Minimal and Modern with an Irish twist. The spiral represents continuity and vastness, the cycle of life, birth and growth.

A lot of my designs will incorporate little swirls in them - this is because I am fascinated with them; how the lines move around one another, revolving around the centre point. This is part of the reason why I love snails, their spiral shells - unique to only them - are their little fortress! Hence the name for my shop, Hammer & Snail :) To me, the spiral represents continuity and vastness. Often when i am doodling I will close my eyes and draw swirls. Hearing the sound of the pencil on the paper fosters my inquisitive and creative side! They also remind me of my Irish heritage, as it is inscribed in many ancient monuments in my country Ireland
