Pluid Project – National Comfort Blanket

In February a national callout was made to every artist, maker or creator in the land to collaborate to create Pluid – a national comfort blanket by submitting a single 15cm X 15cm original art work in any medium. The brief was ‘what gives you comfort and solace during this pandemic’. It appears that many of us have found a new respect for our surroundings, our outdoor spaces, our hobbies and our families.

The individual art works will be curated and assembled like crocheted granny squares of old and then exhibited at a venue (to be confirmed) when restrictions allow in Midsummer, June 2021. Following the exhibition of Pluid, artists will be invited to donate their works to be auctioned for Pieta House, working to prevent suicide and self harm. 

It is a wonderful idea and well done to the artists who are organising it. Watch out for the auction and bid for your favourite piece. Instagram: @pluid.project2021. Here are four artworks contributed by element15 members that I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on:

Poolbeg, Pauline Kiernan
Marie Dunne
Eimear Molony
Trish Webb Duffy
