Enignum Motion by Joseph Walsh
Published on February 28, 2012
Joseph Walsh (born in 1979) founded his Studio in 1999 in Co. Cork, Ireland. His experimentation with design and making began at an early age and he is self-taught. Over the years he has pushed the boundaries of working with wood resulting in a significant body of knowledge around the material and its potential. Walsh’s design approach stemmed from this intimacy with wood, the techniques he had mastered and the combined potential to create structures and form. Today, this experience and fluency with techniques allow him to start at a more conceptual point and explore its many interpretations
In order to celebrate the October 2010 grand opening of the Mint Museum Uptown, the Mint Museum of Craft + Design (Charlotte, North Carolina, USA) has launched theProject Ten Ten Ten, commissioning 10 of the world’s most innovative craft artists to create works. Joseph Walsh, being one of the commissioned artists, created the Enignum Motion Table, which is now in the Museum’s permanent collection.
