Cucumber: Kilkenny limestone

Leave a comment
New Work, vegetables

Last summer I grew some small spikey/bobbly cucumbers (from Seed Savers) in the polytunnel. I thought they were an interesting shape especially with the bobbles. I started the sculpture in the end of August last year and only finished it a few weeks ago. Never again, small bobbles are a nightmare to do, especially to polish!!

I am delighted that bobbly cucumber has gone to a good home already! See more at Lithicworks.com

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.
