Liam Flynn lives and works in County Limerick, Ireland. Almost entirely self-taught, he is now recognized as one of the world’s foremost wood turners. His work is in many permanent collections around the world. Flynn’s celebrated status as a maker in Ireland has recently been recognized through a retrospective exhibition at the Hunt Museum, Limerick. His work was featured on a new special edition stamp, issued to mark 2011 as the Year of Craft in Ireland. Appears courtesy of the Sarah Myerscough Gallery, London.
