Joseph Walsh founded his workshop in 1999 and is a self taught designer-maker. Walsh lives and works in Cork, Ireland. All of his work is informed by a deep engagement with nature, craft and materials. In this series Walsh ‘strips wood into thin layers, manipulating and reconstructing each into free form compositions, while shaping each layer to reveal not only the honesty of the structure but the sculpted form which is a unique collaboration of man and material’. His work has been exhibited and is included in major collections including the Museum of Art and Design, New York.
