This is from our You Know You're Irish..... series.
A unique set of humorous ceramic art tiles that are tell tale signs that makes someone typically Irish. This could be a phrase, an object, a location or an observation that only someone from Ireland would know. These are things that Irish people do or say that are hard to explain to the onlooking outsider. It is these little quirks and eccentricities that make Irish people so unique.
You Know You're Irish...
If you have a ‘hotpress’ in your house. A hotpress is an Irish term for the airing cupboard where a home’s water heater is stored. Chances are you’ll find the feared “immersion switch” here too.
On this design, the main heading in an Irish type display font, and the explanation of the heading is in an old typewriter font which is easy to read and suits the design style. The image is of an woman putting sheets into the hotpress (airing cupboard), we have illustrated this in an old engraving style illustration. This lovely etched style makes a unique illustration that also looks vintage or retro, with a subtle hint of colour. This illustration technique suits the theme of this ceramic art series.
Each Ceramic Print is individually produced ensuring attention to detail and uniqueness - no two are exactly the same.
The images are printed and pressed one at a time onto our specially coated ceramic art tiles.
