9 Stones Artists exhibition, Uncategorized

As part of the the Eigse Carlow Arts Festival, the grouping of Artists in the local area known as the “9 Stone Artist” had an Exhibition in the ball room in Borris House.


We had a great opening on 9th June. Kerry Hardie the poet opened the show with a beautiful talk. There was a good crowd and some of us  were even lucky enough to sell. I exhibited my Garlic (post on 15th July) and a new piece called “Worn Through”.

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.
