Residency funded by Research Mission Award from the Crafts Council of Ireland C(CCoI).It has subsequently been selected for the 'Made in the Studio' exhibition of 5 Artists in Residence from 2009-10. The exhibition opens on August 6th 2010. In 2011 with a 14,000 euro grant from Culture Ireland and a 2000 euro grant from CCoI, the investigation continued to form part of the Irish Pavilion of the International ceramic Art Museums in Fuping China. Also in 2011 participation in the Intonation Symposium in Deidesheim Germany led to the 2012, 2 person exhibition of later developments in Dazzle surface investigation, at Galerie Marianne Heller April 15-May 27, with the 'Second Skin' Series.
