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.
