Here's a photo of the gallery with some of the bowls, for "Mu, The Emptiness of Bowls", opening 6.00pm, Thursday next, 25th June, at NAG Gallery, 59, Francis Street, Dublin 8

One-man show in Dublin


My first one-man show in Dublin since I moved to Mayo in 2006. See the invite for details.

NAG gallery curator, Mark St.John Ellis invited me to make an exhibition of pots on the theme of "Mu", a Buddhist term roughly meaning 'emptiness." So my subtitle is the "Emptiness of Bowls". Everything reduced to its simplest form, bowls as simple abstract shapes, clean lines, minimal decoration.


All welcome
