Liam Flynn

(Irish 1969-2017)

Liam Flynn lived and worked in Limerick throughout his life. Movement is a major theme in his work, and he chose to use green, unseasoned wood as he like to treat it as if it were a malleable material, gently removing the excess from the inside, pushing the wood into fluid forms.

He liked that pieces announced themselves as aesthetic not functional objects.

His works are held in many permanent collections both in the UK and USA. In 2011 an image of his work was featured on a special edition of the Irish postage stamp.

'I relish the challenge of interpreting what the timber will do, how much movement will occur as the vessel dries out and what influence that will have on the line of the final piece.'
