Joseph Walsh

“In the Enignum series of work, I have stripped wood into thin layers, manipulating and reconstructing them into free form compositions. I then shape through these layers to reveal not only the honesty of the structure but the sculpted form which is a unique collaboration of man and material.”

Joseph Walsh (born 1979) founded his studio in 1999 in Ireland.  His workshop has become phenomenally successful and now comprises of a team of master makers and design technicians to resolve and craft ambitious and unique sculptural pieces. The designer has exhibited extensively around the world and is included in the major museum exhibition Crafted: Objects in Flux, on at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston until January 2016. His work is included in many public and private collections, such as the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, USA; Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; Mint Museum of Craft & Design, Charlotte, North Caroline, USA; National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, Dublin, Ireland; The Devonshire Collection, Chatsworth House, UK; Embassy of Japan, Dublin, Ireland; Rafael Vinoly, Uruguay; John H. Bryan Collection, Illinois, USA; and Paul Stuart’s, Madison Avenue, New York, USA.
