Fleeting Sculpture, previously known by its Irish name Duthain Dealbh, was formed officially in 2001 to facilitate the production of large scale sculpture projects and documentary/ film making. Made up of two Irish Sculptors Daniel Doyle and Niall Magee who are both graduates of Fine Art Sculpture, DIT, Dublin, Ireland. Fleeting Sculpture specializes in the ephemeral sculpture materials of ; Sand, Snow, Ice, Fire and also the production of art based documentaries and films.
The origins of our involvement in this area stemmed from an invitation to participate in an international Sand Sculpture event which arrived at the university for Fergus Mulvaney, back in 1993. After this introduction more invitations came which allowed the members of Duthain Dealbh, Niall Magee and Daniel Doyle to be introduced to the various ephemeral media.
Over the last number of years Dutahin Dealbh has also branched into Ice sculpting, participating successfully in many competitions and festivals around the world.
Our first Film/Documentary Production, “Cool Carvings” was extremely well received and had its first airing on TG4 in 2003, and also received great praise when it was screened at the Izmir International Film Festival in Turkey in 2004.
In 2015 it was decided to change our name from ‘Duthain Dealbh’ to it’s english translation ‘Fleeting Sculpure’ for easy of communictation.
Now along with creating Sculptures all over the world Fleeting sculpture has our very own Ice sculpture work shop Here in Ireland where we can create Ice sulptures for events from Weddings to table top presentations. We have also started running workshops in both sand and Ice allowing people to get a taste of exciting Materials under the watchful eye of our professionals.
