In her own words: "There is a universality about the presence of concrete. Used for years as a building material, it is perfectly comfortable invited into a room as a piece of furniture. Warmer to the touch than stone and malleable as putty until it sets, it lends a powerful presence to a room."
Clodagh's love affair with concrete began when she left a fashion design career in Ireland.
"The reason I left fashion was that it was too ephemeral, and what I love about concrete is that it is eternal, and it takes on a gorgeous patina over time."
At Thursday evening's "Summer Soiree," Clodagh and Trueform introduced the Clodagh Collection, celebrating concrete forms and Clodagh's happy, new East 23rd Street Studio.
