Nestled in the heart of the Lake District near Mullingar, Ireland, are the work-shops and studios of Genesis Fine arts. Genesis Fine Arts was established in 1986 to produce a range of hand crafted cold cast bronze sculptures. The name Genesis was chosen to reflect the Bronze Age origins of sculpture in Ireland. Today's methods of creating a true work of art differ only in the more advanced forms of casting and finishing used. This elegantly crafted bronze ornament is of a traditional Barrel maker at work – The cooper.
