The symbol of the currach is a fabulous one; signifying strength, resilience, fortitude, and ruggedness. The people who lived by the sea also lived largely from the sea. They would fish in all weathers, using the currach to bring home the catch to their families. Sturdy and light, the currach is now often used in sea racing or currach racing. Clodagh Redden, a Limerick-born sculptress who began by working primarily in ceramic, now casts much of her work in bronze; adding to their impressive nature. Her signature piece has become the currach, or sculptures surrounding that theme. Whether in ceramic or bronze, her sculptures, particularly the boats, are always individually crafted and unique. This beautiful bronze piece depicts a male and a female form carrying their currach to the shore.
Your Shipping Choices Explained
NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned.
We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination. This option would be at your own risk.
We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)
Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged. For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.
For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
