Twenty two gargoyles and angels descent from the cathedrals
The project is part of a public art programme of a major urban regeneration schemeto re-vitalise eleven streets in Armagh City Centre. Twenty-two bronze gargoyles and angels were installed in June 2010 at a range of urban locations, such ashouse corner stones, in brick walls, door knockers, attached to fencing, etc. The character and design of the individual pieces reflect the architecture oftheir setting and the history of a specific location. The work is deliberately small and intricate in scale: these angels and gargoyles are meant to be discovered by accident and bring with them an element ofsurprise. The first angel was cast during a public demonstration at Navan Fort near Armagh using Iron Age metal working methods. The work was Regional Finalist for the Civic Trust Awards 2012.
