Diarmuid Byron O'Connor

These works by Diarmuid Byron O'Connor are very very special; they are hard heavy solid bronze, but they have such incredible balance that they seem to defy gravity. In sculpture the balance of a work is its most important feature, but these works take that to a new level - you take this very heavy solid bronze work of art and place it on a flat surface and it stands there, balancing on its tip toes!
