FLOCK OF GEESE AND BOY BY NIALL BRUTON [MIDLETON COUNTY CORK]
Born and reared in Dublin, Niall Bruton graduated from the National College of Art and Design in 1986. While there he concentrated on the casting and fabrication of metals in a sculptural context and developed these techniques further in studio experience in Florence, Italy and Valencia, Spain.
Now long established in Donegal with a workshop and studio in Donegal Craft Village, Niall work is primarily commission based rather than exhibition orientated, with a high emphasis on craft, technique and quality of build. He has developed a wide range of jewellery designs in precious metals – micro sculpture at an affordable level, as he likes to see it.
