About this Artist:

Eamonn Higgins, a sculptor working mainly in steel, draws his inspiration from his Northern Irish heritage. The natural landscape is reflected in his use of animal forms, fruit and trees.

Although his understanding of steel as a material has it rots in his training in traditional blacksmithing, he now uses contemporary tools and techniques to work the metal itself: deconstructing the steel by melting and burning it with plasma cutters and oxy-acetylene guns; reforming it with welders and heat.

Recently Eamonn has focused on down-scaling, which has resulted in a new smaller range of sculptures. Simplifying the forms has allowed the colours and textures to take center stage.
