Created by Jeanne Rynhart in 1981, Rynhart's bronze sculptures have been captivating people all over the world ever since. Each piece is individually handmade with delicate modelling and depicts Irish symbols and famous Irish figures such as Molly Malone and Grace O’Malley. Jeanne was in fact commissioned in 1988 to create the iconic Molly Malone statue in Dublin city, one of the most beloved statues in Ireland for both locals and tourists alike.
Today, the studio is run by Jeanne's daughter Audrey and her husband Les Elliot, who both manage the company from Glengarriff in West Cork. Each figure is lovingly rendered and shows a chapter in the story of Ireland, making Rynhart bronze sculptures a beautiful addition to any home or a unique gift from Ireland. Rynhart is one of our most popular makers we and take great pride in sharing their work on Gifts of Ireland.
