The problems of Waterford Wedgwood have not dampened 21st birthday celebrations at Irish competitor Tipperary Crystal. The company has extended its line with the renowned designer Louise Kennedy as part of its “innovation through design” strategy, which has seen collaborations with Irish talent such as the chef Rachel Allen, Patrick Guilbaud, the restaurateur, and the designer Sybil Connolly. Ms. Kennedy launched the range of nine new items at Showcase Ireland, the crafts and giftware fair, held from 19 – 21 January 2009.
