Two materials carefully crafted and seamlessly melded

"Stone is more organic.  I have different styles in steel and stone.  In stone I bring out the shapes, in steel I enfource my will.  Stone controls me.  Like Michaeangelo said, it's about finding the image in stone."

Display Case for the Book of Kells facsimile

O'Donoghue/Ross describes his son as 'the great fabricator'.  This remarkable display case is a good example of that.  It was commissioned by the collector, Robert Pierse, to provide a secure method to allow the facsimile Book of Kells that he owns to be exhibited publically.  The base is fine oak, the columns are mahogany, both turned and modelled by Eoghan and all fitted precisely to offer a striking presentation case.  He and D'Ana collaborated on creating the magnificent book cover to protect the facsimile, including the finest leather, hand-hammered stainless steel, gold leaf appliqué and molten glass insets.
