The inaugural Late Late Show St. Patrick’s Day Award. I was delighted to be asked (at short notice) to produce the Late Late Show St. Patrick’s Day Award.
Our ‘Infinity Spiral’ which was presented by Ryan Tubridy to Dr. Sammar Ali. Dr. Ali is the daughter of Dr. Syed Waqqar Ali the Mater Hospital Dr who was one of the 8 HSE staff to die of Covid. Dr. Sammar Ali received this special award on behalf of her own work also in the Mater and that of her father as acknowledgement of the wider heroic work done by health workers all over Ireland.
The Infinity Spiral is a continuous strip of brass which goes through a turbulent knot and exits upwards to infinity and the sky. Its base is made from Kilkenny marble. We are always open to awards or sculptural comissions if you have a project in mind. Hope some of you stayed up late enough to see it on the telly.
