More about this piece
It is a great honour to be commissioned by Dublin City University (DCU) to create a significant new public sculpture inspired by the work of teachers.
The sculpture will be placed in the grounds of DCU’s St. Patrick’s Campus in Drumcondra as a permanent symbol of DCU’s Teachers Inspire Ireland initiative, which is focused on highlighting the enormous contribution made by teachers in Irish society.
Miniature replicas of the sculpture will also be presented to four teachers at the inaugural Teachers Inspire gala event later this year. It truly is an honour to be part of a project that gives recognition to the wonderful work our teachers do.
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.
