This is one of the biggest and most intricate pieces that I have made. I made it while listening to Stephen Fry’s new audiobook Mythos Greek myths retold! It was fantastic and so I think this is Zeus Athena and Hera dancing in the heavens and it looks fab in Bloom 2018 this weekend amongst the flowers of Kilmurry nurseries. This sculpture is currently for sale and is made from stainless steel and is a lifetime piece. It is around 1 and a half meters squared. t took two months to make.
A group of friends got together to commission this hare for the special birthday of a good friend. She phoned me after in her own words scouring the internet for the right gift and came across my work and felt one of my hares would fit the bill !! I was delighted to receive this commission all my hare come out with different personalities and this one is most certainly the big nut brown hare.
I really had to do a lot of experimentation to make this piece in a way that I thought would work I had to make moulds cast metal and learn about patinas!!! Here he is my proud little Irish horse. He is only 50cm height. I look forward to making another one and look forward to the challenges that come my way in the world of Equestrian Art.
I took me some time to work out how to create this piece to achieve a feeling of lightness to a very sturdy piece is quite a challenge! I had to get all the tension on the different gauges of wire to get the piece to look light but be sturdy and hard wearing to live a lifetime in the garden and be enjoyed outside all year around wind rain and shine I look forward to your commission and creating a piece for you! Thanks Emma
I love every time I am asked to make a hare they are always so characterful I love this one he is just so alive. He is hopping down to Cork to live with a lovely lady celebrating a very special birthday! As always thank you for your commission.
The first fairy of 2018 shes a very calm spirit as after hours of experimentation some success and some failures I have ironed out the way to make these little sprits. Although they are still by far the most difficult and time-consuming pieces that I make taking over 30 hours of intense work for just a simple sitting fairy. This fairy is made of high-grade stainless steel which is extremely hard wearing and can live indoors or outdoors with you forever. Each piece is unique and made to your specifications please contact me to start your commission.
I have been bursting since the time I started doing my sculptures four years ago to have the opportunity to make a pair of herons. They seem to work so well in our gardens. They really do the job of creating a magic feeling and as sculpture should give you an uplifting feeling. They are made of Bronze that is now definitely my medium of choice. It is very easy to work with and super sophisticated. It is also more expensive but the time that I put into the pieces justifies the investment. Bronze sculptures are an investment and I am delighted to have clients that are investing in my work!
Another member of my fox sculptures causing a little bit of interest before she made it to her forever home in cork where just for Christmas she is in the garden keeping her beady eye on her new owner busy in the kitchen preparing for Christmas.
I know peacock are boys but they are so pretty this name seemed to suit him. This is my first piece in bronze and it was lovely to work with. It gives a very sophisticated look. I oxidised parts of the sculpture to get the fantastic green colour and polished up other parts of the piece and achieve a lovely mix of colour and finish. I would be delighted to work on another bronze piece a green fairy for example… Let’s see what new challenges 2018 brings. The peacock stands for longevity, kindness, love, compassion, goodwill, protectiveness, glory, beauty, life, health, radiance, resurrection, renewal, stimulation and life. Wow, I think we could all do with a symbol like this in the garden. Happy New Year.
Joy is a spinning fairy just to add that little bit more magic she has a glass face and is a lovely little soul. She didn’t cause me too much bother and is now on the way to her forever home in Lake Michigan U.S.A. Where I am sure she will be received with great JOY Happy Christmas.
