2015 Carlow Arts Festival: “topic” hazelnut

Carlow Arts Festival, for sale, nuts & seeds

The hazelnuts were amazing this year, a mast year. It inspired me! I made three stone (Kilkenny Limestone) hazel nuts this autumn. Two have been given away for 50th birthday presents.

Kilkenny Limestone: hand-polished, roughly 20 cm in length.

2016: two more were made, one sold at the Writers Festival in Borris.

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.
