Artist’s Eye on Ireland: Irish Harp
Irish Harp, Wally Charm www.acutabovecoins.etsy.com
Wally continues the ancient craft of piercing which involves drilling small holes in a piece of metal (in his case unique coins) and cutting out an often detailed design by hand.
He works with coins from around the world and includes many Irish coins… including coins that were in circulation before the introduction of the Euro in Ireland. This Irish harp pendant reflects his interest in traditional Irish music… at Irish sessions near his home in Seattle, Washington, Wally plays the uilleann pipes and his wife plays the banjo and fiddle.
