Kirsten Roe: One Soft Hand
One Soft Hand is the most recent project of textile designer Kirsten Roe.
After graduating with a BA in Textile Embroidery from The National College of Art and Design, Dublin, she started to transition her focus from womenswear to art pieces. One Soft Hand was born out of a love of all things hand-shaped. After some sketching, colour and texture research, each piece is sewn, stuffed and embellished by hand. The possibilities of colour, shape, texture and embellishment make this theme something fantastic and interesting to explore through both painting and making. The pieces themselves are inspired by charms and protection for the owner. One Soft Hand brings fun, hand-sewn soft furnishings and art to the contemporary home.
