Its not often you get to actually buy something from a famous artist. Jeanne Rynhart has been hand making bronze sculptures since the 1980s and many of her most iconic statues can be found in Dublin in Ireland, most famous of which is Molly Malone…. A Life sized Bronze Statue that Jeanne made that is now a major tourist attraction.
Jeanne Rynhart started her business in 1981 and is well known for such iconic public sculpture as Molly Malone, Annie Moore and the Rose of Tralee continues to enjoy success today through expansion and adaptation, plus the fact that the product is 100% hand made in Ireland. In 1994 Audrey Rynhart joined her mother and now she and her husband Les Elliott run the business from their studio in Glengarriff, West Cork, one of Ireland’s most popular holiday destinations.
Each piece 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.
