On a cold grey day last Autumn Monica Hayes from KCLR (Kilkenny Carlow Local Radio) came to visit me in my studio to interview me for her great series – A Portrait of ……..

We spent almost three hours chatting about all sorts of of things involved with my work, interests and life. The result of the chat was broadcast on Sunday 1st March 2020. I was too scared to listen to it live. I really do not enjoy listening to myself, at all!! I finally put on the headphones and listened to it while splitting logs. After a few minutes, once I had got over it was me talking, I began to enjoy it. I think Monica did a brilliant job putting it all together and editing it so well.

Thanks Monica and KCLR for a great interview and series. The other Artists and Crafts-people in the series so far are Glenn Lucas – wood turner (who lives over the hill), Maeve Coulter – print maker and Mary O’Neill – lace maker.

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.
