Gerardine Wisdom is an artist who works in rushwork basketry, also in ceramics and mosaic murals. Uniquely in Ireland, she has taken this ancient craft of rushwork and turned it into a new Irish Art Form in sculpture. The mosaic murals are created using handmade ceramic pieces and broken ceramic tiles.

Gerardine has passion for rushes and is inspired by the natural beauty she sees around her in the Irish landscape where she lives, especially in its lake and shores of the Shannon.

Gerardine has over 20 years experience working with schools, community groups and festivals.

I have worked as an artist since obtaining an honours degree in art and design, at the London Guildhall University in 1996. 

I strive to make art understandable and accessible to everyone. I often bring “community” along in the creative journey for some of the artworks, thus reinforcing their understanding and ownership. 

In my work I like to combine different materials, utilising their unique inherent qualities and also honouring the craft skill for each.
