In October I submitted a proposal for a Wexford Co. Council, “per cent for Art Commission” for a housing scheme, Cherrorchard Phase II, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford.

In December I was surprised and delighted to found out I was shortlisted. So now I’m mad busy trying to get the final submission in for the 16th January. Wish me luck.

Martin Lyttle is a recognised Irish stone sculptor. With a sensitivity to the local lithology of an area, Martin works only with local Irish stone from quarries or found stone. He is interested in organic shapes and forms especially those found in nature. Much of his work is hand-polished so his works are wonderful to touch and hold. His work has been selected for the Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibitions and he has completed large scale public and private commissions. He is a member of FORM designmade in Carlow and the Blackstairs 9 Stones Artists Groups.

    Congrats getting this far. This is a nice arrangement, some interesting twists and turns going on. Stems give u a chance to do something dynamic as the cherries themselves don’t have much detail apart from their lush colour. u can probably make an opening through the stem without compromising the stone. Where did u get the cherries this time of year??


  2. Congratulations again Martin, first Eigse now this! Best of luck with the second phase of your submission. Just wondering as well how Eileen seems to be morphing into ME!


  3. Dear Martin the cherries are so delectable I could eat them, wow they are sweet as!
    Prayerful blessings for a wonderful outcome on the 16th Jan.
    Love from Mary & Michael
