Clodagh Redden New Bronze & Porcelain Sculptures

Clodagh Redden in Draíocht.
The themes and motifs used in Clodagh’s work are symbolic of a spiritual journey between life and death. The Greek mythology of the ferryman Charon carrying the souls across the River Styx is the original concept of these transitional vessels but she also incorporates Celtic motifs, tonalities and mood within the pieces.

On the Way to Once, beautiful new bronze from Ian Pollock.

Ian Pollock bronze

Dublin born sculptor Ian Pollock,Inspiration for his sculptures comes from aspects of daily life. Pollock sees his work ‘like a three dimensional diary’ of his life. “I never limit myself to one subject or style of work and can never say where the work will go next which makes it exciting for myself and I hope for the viewer. I like the fact that bronze is so permanent, a bronze sculpture is going to be around forever.”
