An Post is celebrating 2011 Year of Craft with the issue of five 55c stamps.
Each stamp is dedicated to one of the main craft disciplines: Glass, Wood, Metal, Textiles and Ceramics.
The work of five Irish craft artists/makers illustrates each of these disciplines:
Roisin de Buitlear - Glass
Liam Flynn - Wood
Inga Reed - Metal
Helen McAllister - Textiles
Deirdre McLoughlin - Ceramics
The five 55c stamps were designed by Irish graphic designer Ger Garland incorporating photographs of one-off gallery type pieces.
