Jennifer Slattery

Jennifer Slattery creates textile products for the home. Her collections feature printed and embroidered Irish linens including placemats, tablecloths, runners and napkins, as well as cushion covers and throws. Informed by her background in graphic design, she uses print and embroidery on cloth to create evocative and original pieces.

Slattery’s work is grounded in an appreciation of heritage, particularly in terms of domestic life and material history. Her home once belonged to her grandmother, and she finds inspiration in the trinkets and ornaments still there, resonant with echoes of generations past. This link to memories and past moments is at the centre of Slattery’s practice, so that her work represents a celebration of the ‘everyday heirloom.’ She appreciates objects that survive the test of time, and is particularly attracted to flaws, broken edges and imperfections, seeing in them the substance of character.

Slattery studied at the Letterkenny Institute of Technology and later at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. She currently works at the Malthouse Design Centre in North Dublin.
