Wicklow based sculptor Helen O’Connell works from her studio by the sea in Bray. Her sculpture is inspired by organic biomorphic forms found in nature, Japanese design aesthetics and Irelands ancient relationship with stone as a medium. Increasingly her sculpture seeks to draw attention to the epic scale of geological time contained in these stones and their fossils. After graduating from Trinity College Dublin O’Connell studied stone sculpture in Leitrim Sculpture Centre, in Nicoli Studios in Cararra, Italy and in the marble quarries of Alentejo, Portugal. Her work is in many public and private collections in Ireland and abroad and she is currently a member of ‘Homo Faber’; (a celebration of European excellence in craftsmanship), the Michelangelo Foundation and the Design and Crafts Council.
