Award winning ceramic water sculpture by Michelle Maher - Symmetry at Blarney Castle, Co. Cork. Inspired by Dahlia and Coral forms, it was sculpted in my own grogged paper clay body and high fired in an electric kiln. Symmetry is now part of the permanent collection at Blarney Castle.

“Her work lends itself very well to garden application.  From the rustic to the suburban, any garden space would be enhanced by her ceramics, which have been moulded and plied by Michelle’s distinctive talent and energy.”
