You wake up one day & the storm is over.
By winter we huddled in Kinlough – carving stone.
Under the skillful hand of Brendan Mc Gloin – (He of the High Cross)
With the usual suspects (here with McBreaty & Mc Anaw)
We are making vessels here. Power tool cuts in segments, then hand chisel them out easier.
Patsy has taken out the waste stone, then sands his almost baptismal font of a bowl.
He is a natural at stone.
Here Brendan advises Kieran Keeney on how to carve a triskele
Paul Cunningham meanwhile forges ahead.
While Brendan shows me how to use a sandbox to hold a stone while punching out a surface
Come see & learn from the master himself at the Tírconnell Stone Festival

Looking forward to seeing you all.
Some beautiful work. I just love stone…don’t know why but I do.
I try to carve stone nearly every day
That work is class a friend from the past
