Niamh Barry’s Whale, a unique light sculpture powered by dimmable LEDs, is made of mirror-polished and patinated hand-formed bronze and glass opal tiles. Composed of Barry’s signature floating hand-formed rings, Whale is a sinuous and glamorous suspended sculpture that assumes completely new shapes and levels of light depending upon the angle from which the work is viewed. Inspired by movement, Barry’s light sculpture encourages the viewer’s own movement so as to experience the work’s multifaceted forms.
As Barry works on a commission basis, a bespoke version may be made to order with custom dimensionality, materials, and finishes.
Niamh Barry was born in 1968 in Dublin, Ireland, where she still works and lives. In 1991, upon graduation from the National College of Art and Design, Barry established her studio and started to create unique conceptual furniture and light sculptures from a range of materials including aluminum, porcelain, linen, mirror, and acrylic as well as wood, black patinated hand-formed solid bronze, mirror-polished solid bronze, and Murano glass. In her signature works, visual weight and movement are constant themes. All custom pieces are available with dimmable LED lighting. Barry’s work is included in many public and private collections nationally and internationally, including the Four Seasons Hotel, O2, Candy and Candy, the Merrion Hotel, the Shelbourne Hotel, Finchatton, and U2’s own collection.
