West Cork Craft and Design Guild - A guide to some of Ireland's finest craftwork.

Linda Sébéo-Cohu

Linda Sébéo-Cohu, a French-born sculptor, studied at the Beaux Art de Paris and in Oslo. She was apprenticed to a woodcarver in Norway before coming to live in the mountains of West Cork in 1980.

Small figures in porcelain, wood and clay made up much of her early work. Now she takes bog oak and driftwood in their natural forms, and animates them with figurative elements in clay and copper.

Dreams and nature inspire her work, the materials and images guiding the final form, much like tribal art. She continues to experiment and to explore sculptural forms.

Workshop is open by appointment.
