Fucus II (Bladderwrack seaweed)

New Work, outside sculpture

I spent much of the winter grinding away at Fucus II. I took me way longer and became more complicated than I intended.  I think I just got carried away.

It went  to the annual “Richard Scott Sculpture @ Ballymaloe” (21st June to 3rd September 2017) where Richie managed to sell it. It went to the same home as Fucus I. Thanks Richie!!


Spooky supervising work

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.

    Great to see all the shots of fucus II in the making, especially to see that it started out being white. Magnificent work, Martin!
