I opened the Blue Egg Gallery in autumn 2011 in an 18th century town house. It is situated in the heart of Wexford town, close to the Arts Centre, the library and the National Opera House. In the gallery and the adjoining shop, I show contemporary craft work by Irish and international makers working in clay, glass, textiles, willow and metal. The range of work on display includes both functional and decorative work which will interest both collectors and those looking for creative gifts for special occasions or simply wanting to enhance their home. Alongside work by gallery artists, the Blue Egg also arranges regular exhibitions, demonstrations and workshops.


The gallery is open March to December from 11.00am to 5.30 pm, Tuesday to Saturday. During the Wexford Opera Festival the gallery is open Monday to Sunday. I live over the gallery so if you are in Wexford on a Sunday or Monday, it is always worth ringing the bell. If I am at home, I will be delighted to show you around.
