Other Work

Sometimes I am asked to make things other than pots or pictures, like Tibetan Prayer Wheels for the Festival of World Cultures in Dublin, or a vast plinth for the Brahmasthan of a Vedically designed house. Besides genuine viols and violins, I have made fake musical instruments for movies, and replica instruments for restored castles, even an "ancient" harp for an Irish pub in Singapore. I am open to suggestions and requests. Photographs of some of these objects will appear here from time to time.


A new departure, a glorified doodle, marker-pen on a paper table-cloth for my son Murrough's 31st birthday. Liberated by a visit to the Collection de l"Art Brut in Lausanne. It just evolved as a 60s psychedlic colour-trip, all saying Happy Birthday Murrough (in Hindi and Mandarin as well as English)

September 2013, I made a small exhibition of replica Tudor pottery of the types found in sites on the west coast of Ireland for the local "Pirate Queen, Grainneuaile Festival." The explanation of the work follows. The images can be found in the Replica ware section of this website.
