Estyn, 2019

Kilkenny Blue Limestone​

Estyn expresses the human desire for improvement, our hope and belief that we can aspire to anything. 

 

The figure twists and rises out of rough stone, swirling like water, towards the clouds.

 

The title is a Welsh word meaning to reach out and stretch for. The piece was developed under the guidance of Glenn Morris, a sculptor based in Wales and the early work was done in his studio near Rhulen in Wales.

 

Estyn is due to be exhibited at Roundwood House in County Laois, Ireland, in 2022, not far from where the stone was originally quarried.
