Estyn, 2019

Kilkenny Blue Limestone​

This piece expresses the human desire for improvement, our hope and belief that we and the world around us can improve.


The figure rises out of rough stone towards the clouds. The title is a Welsh word meaning to reach out and stretch. 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.
