It has given me great pleasure to create Teachers Inspire a sculpture cast in bronze, commissioned by Dublin City University and generously sponsored by Mr. Dermot Desmond, to honour our teachers and acknowledge their dedication and the great work that they do.
Unity Cherrywood Business Park. South Dublin. Commissioned by Spear Street Capital. Project managed by Hines Stainless Steel 9 meters high.
Unity emerges from the Cherrywood landscape as a way finder welcoming and reflecting life as it passes by. Feature mirror designs based on the ancient Rathdown Slabs allow a play of light throughout these open spaces.
This stainless Steel sculpture is Interactive and extravagantly curvaceous, raising our spirits and bringing a sense of place to Cherrywood. Unity soars to the sky, its iconic presence the essence of its being.
Sandra Bell makes sculpture in cast bronze and fabricated steel. The themes of ‘Harmony’ and ‘Balance’ are predominant in her sculpture. The simple lines are challenging. They create large spaces which allow a play of light throughout the sculptures. The smooth surfaces and soft curves draw one in, to interact with these living uncomplicated shapes.
The pleasure and enjoyment in connecting with people through the creation of my sculpture delights me. I lose myself in my work and explore my inner feelings in a quiet and meditative place. I love that others viewing my sculpture may share part of my experience and find meaning and relevance in the work that I do.
