New commissions for 2013

After a marketing initiative in the New Year, I secured two new commissions.  With such a short deadline a huge push was needed to produce 25 Digital Media Awards for the big event in Dublin’s Conference Centre on the 1st of March.

Sports Awards

Another new commission acquired early in the year and with an even tighter deadline was to make new awards for the  Impartial Reporter newspaper in Enniskillen.   The budget was tight but the client was lovely to work for so I was delighted to be able to produce these laser-engraved limestone award pieces for them.

Birds for Christmas

Just in time for the Christmas Exhibition at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre in Manorhamilton, I finished some small bird sculptures. I carved two in stone, and also cast them in bronze, giving me two pairs to exhibit.

The  National Enterprise Awards were presented last night in Dublin.  This has been an exciting time for me, as it is a prestigious Irish commission and has been covered extensively by the press.

I have also had press coverage in the local papers, with a story about the creation of the awards.

Great local press coverage

 

 

Sandcasting in Bronze & Aluminium Workshop

Dates: Sun 25th March | Sat 27th & 28th October
Course Fees: €190 – 10am to 5pm

In this workshop, participants will learn how to make a sand mould from a solid original, otherwise known as a “pattern”. Bring with you a suitable pattern* and in a few hours you will have a bronze or aluminium casting of that piece! Fettling and basic finishing will be done at the end of the class.

*Advice on suitable patterns (flat-backed or two-part, with no undercuts) will be emailed to you when you book the workshop. Everyday and found objects (bones, shells, nuts, household items) can lend themselves nicely to moulding, as well as your original sculpted patterns.
