Jean Moran is a traditional hand loom weaver and spinner.  She looks to traditional Irish styles, creating pieces with a contemporary edge and twist.  Jean creates pieces that are creative yet functional such as throws, blankets, scarves and guitar straps, and also pieces of a more artistic quality, such as wall hangings and framed pieces.  Aware of the environment, Jean aims to use materials that are organic, sourced locally and to recycle and reuse, as much as possible in her work.  She looks towards her own intuition, imagination, and also Irish folklore, heritage and customs for inspiration towards her pieces.  Her work can be seen on her website www.celtichandweaves.ie
