Steel is Eamonn’s main medium. He pushes, then balances traditional blacksmithing skills with contemporary fabrication techniques, creating an ‘up-cycled’ material unique to him.
Since graduating in 2003 with BA Hons, Eamonn has been working full-time as a professional artist. Initially cutting his teeth in the competitive world of public art in England, Eamonn moved home to the Glens of Antrim in 2006 to pursue projects in the public realm that challenged his understanding of home, his heritage and self.
Exhibiting alongside 'high-end' Irish Fine Art means that Eamonn's one-off unique sculpture sits proudly within the worlds of Fine Art and Contemporary Craft.
The creativity that Eamonn has brought to prestigious Private and Public Commissions and smaller commercial sculpture allows an open approach to his private collectors and agents.
As a founder of Learn to Blacksmith, Eamonn passes on his skills in a creative and inclusive way in his evening and weekend classes.
