Me and my mythical totem
at Moytura 2000.
1998 I was hired to go and work in Virginia in the U.S. As part of
my job I learned to make plaster casts. I based the casts I made on
early Irish art. I have four moulds which I brought home with me:
the three main stones from Newgrange and a Sheela na Gig from Galway.
Now, 10 years on I am still doing the odd casting session - they make
great presents. I do plaster casts, which are light and can be painted
- which are suitable for indoors; and cement casts, which look like
the original stone, and are good for gardens.
