Purple Glow


A framed textile artwork of a few lines from one of my favourite poems "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" by William Butler Yeats.

"...there midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,

And evening full of the linnets wings"

The words have been manually typed by Karena using her vintage typewriter. 

Purple cottons, turmeric dyed cotton, linens, repurposed sari fabric, Irish tweed and lace are free motion stitched to complement the poem. The complementary colours and tones really pop in this piece. 

Designed and hand crafted by Karena in her studio in County Galway, this piece of art has been sustainably crafted.  


The piece is framed in a limed wood box frame behind glass. As I am passionate about sustainability, my frames, packaging and wrapping are custom made in Ireland.  

Frame measures 26 x 26 cm.

Artwork measures 12 x 12 cm

Each framed artwork is packed very carefully in custom made cardboard boxes followed by a layer of bubble wrap and then wrapped with biodegradable wrapping paper and tied up with string (these are a few of my favourite things!
