Hello and welcome to Seamus Cassidy.ie. Seamus Cassidy, woodturner
and cabinet-maker, lives and works close to the historical site of
Newgrange, one of Ireland's most visited tourist attractions.
Thanks to his background in architectural
design, Seamus recognized an old carthouse's potential for being
transformed into an atmospheric studio and gallery. His renovation
of the space combines old world charm with modern design features,
resulting in a perfect showcase for his crafts. There is ample parking,
access for the disabled, and visitors can watch Seamus work from
a glass screened viewing area.
A Unique Beauty
The key to Seamus's work is his ability to recognize a beautiful
object in an apparently ordinary piece of wood and his skill in
revealing the unique beauty of each piece of Irish timber. Seamus's
designs combine traditional and contemporary characteristics, resulting
in innovative and stylish crafts and furniture.
Rather than coerce nature into perfect forms, Seamus uses natural
features to aesthetic advantage. Seamus's elusive style could be
described as elegance in harmony with nature.
Collection includes functional and
artistic bowls and platters in native Irish timbers. Furniture commissions
undertaken with the unusual combination of contemporary designs
and traditional construction in solid timbers.
