Aileen Anne Brannigan

Based in the village of Castlecomer in Co. Kilkenny, Aileen Anne is a stone carver specialising in hand carved lettering using a hammer and chisel and working in traditional methods in her own unique style. Using locally quarried limestone and black marble, she creates ranges of quietly dramatic stone bowls, candleholders, bookends and decorative pieces.  She also produces larger individual work to commission, often incorporating beautifully hand-drawn and hand-carved text and ornamentation.
