Jeanne Rynhart has been making bronze sculptures by hand in Ireland for nearly forty years. She is very famous in particular for her life sized statues in Dublin including Molly Malone the ‘Tart with a Cart’ which is a huge tourist attraction.
This sculpture is a wonderful gift or commemoration for a graduation and its rare that you get the opportunity to own a sculpture hand made by such a well known artist.
Each piece, from the famous Molly Malone statue in Dublin down to smaller bas relief, is individually hand made. When happy with the modelling, a mould is made and production begins in bronze plate (cold cast bronze) or smelt bronze (for gallery work/one off public sculpture and private commissions). Finally the pieces are hand polished and finishing touches added.
There are only literally a few of these left as all the sculptures Jeanne makes are of very limited numbers.
