Liam Flynn’s vessels are incredibly sensual and intuitive; he was an artist who had an innate understanding and sensitivity for the material he worked with combined with a masterly light touch and ethereal, earthly quality. Whether small scale or more monumental sculptural works, Liam’s work simply called out to be touched and admired.

Liam Flynn - Selected Works
It is hard to find a measure for just how talented Liam was but, if Ireland honoured craftspeople as they are honoured in Japan, he would have already long been designated a Living National Treasure, a tangible cultural asset embodying the standard all craftspeople should aspire to. This is not based on sentiment due to his sad and premature death but on a long standing personal belief that he was Ireland’s most outstanding craftsman in any discipline.
