Unique handmade metal art pieces
I hand make unique, individually metal art pieces using old discarded broken garden tools, various scrap metals and other ‘found’ treasures to catering tin cans. I hand weave metal rods and re-enforcing concrete bars
(sometimes forging these) to make tree trunks that branch out with flowers and leaves and cones. Mega flowers circa 1 meter in diameter to many meter long vines to broaches circa 2 cms in diameter, all using tin cans for the petals. The vines or Welcome/Friendship Rings look lovely with outdoor lighting wrapped around them, possible at the front door area or dark garden wall especially in winter. The rings are suitable from weddings to graves, a long lasting, maintenance free, remembrance.
As each piece is hand made the metals never twist the same, they’re all hand painted, I prefer to mix the paints whilst painting, so each piece is always different with its own personality.
I have exhibited throughout Ireland including in the Bloom, Botanic Gardens, Galway International Arts Festival, Blarney Castle, Ring of Beara (Mill Grove Gallery).
Recent commissions include ‘The Jesse Tree’,St. Flannan’s Cathedral, Killaloe, Co. Clare. Various pieces for a schools, for private gardens and
for several ‘Tidy Towns’ amongst others.
My metal art is suitable for outdoors, as well as indoors.
