A Sparkling Party: Contemporary Irish Silver

An Illustrated Talk by Kevin O’Dwyer Master Silversmith

For over 30 years O’Dwyer’s artwork has explored the subtleties of ritual and imagination. Irish prehistoric art, bronze-age artefacts, early monastic metalwork, 20th century design and architecture are his creative influences. Equipped with this visual vocabulary O’Dwyer has created artefacts that often combine the textured surfaces and flowing lines of our past with the strong and austere forms of modern architecture. His ultimate goal has been to create a work of art that is timeless, thought provoking and responsive to the human spirit.

O’Dwyer is internationally renowned and represented in both public and private collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; The National Museum of Ireland; The High Museum, Atlanta; The Ulster Museum, Belfast; The Kamm Teapot Foundation, Celestial Seasons, Colorado; The Company of Goldsmiths, Dublin; The Racine Museum of Art; Nelson Mandela, King Karl Gustav of Sweden and The Japanese Imperial Family. He has represented Ireland in over 40 international exhibitions and has featured in over 200 publications including Ireland’s Treasures, 5000 years of Artistic Expression by Dr Peter Harbison.
