Niamh Barry, Vessel II and Vessel III, IRE, 2017

Niamh Barry’s unique wall-mounted light sculptures are made of hand-raised, mirror polished and brushed solid bronze. Inspired by organic forms, Vessel II and Vessel III  are illuminated by a glow of LEDs that emits a soft light between the bronze forms.  These unique works are available by commission, wherein custom dimensionality may also be accommodated.  Displayed separately or in a pair the sculptures are a striking ambient focal point. 

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 make unique conceptual furniture and light sculptures from a range of materials including aluminum, porcelain, linen, mirror, and acrylic as well as wood,  black patinated solid hand formed bronze, mirror polished hand formed solid bronze, and opal glass. In her signature work, visual weight and movement are a constant theme.  All custom pieces are available with dimmable LED lighting.

Since the inception of her artistic career with Todd Merrill Studio in 2012, Barry has ascended the art and design world, becoming one of the most sought after figures working in LED light sculptures today, commissioned by museums such as the National Museum of Ireland and designers including Peter Marino Architects. 

Barry was profiled in Architectural Digest and Galerie Magazine (2016) and her work is included in many public and private collections nationally and internationally, including the Four Seasons Hotel, Candy and Candy, Merrion Hotel, Shelbourne Hotel, Finchatton, Ritz Carlton.  Most recently Niamh Barry was the recipient of the 2017 award for Best Lighting in Image Interiors and Living magazine.
