Metal and Mallet pride ourselves on hand carving Irish, unique, sustainable sculptures of Functional Art/ furniture & Lighting. Examples include one-of-a-kind Mirrors, Table Lamps, Floor Lamps, Ceiling Lights, Chairs, Tables Sculptures, Clocks and Bowls/platters.

Donnacha is a true master of his Art. One can be totally confident that each piece is Exclusive, Bespoke, that exhibits and confirms the discerning eye of the owner.

I incorporate sustainably sourced Tipperary Wood, re-purposed Metal and Copper into each design and creation. I am passionate about 1960’s architecture, One can see this captured through the curves and textures in each piece I design. I love to push boundaries and cause conversations and dialect, bringing people together as each piece has ‘a Story to Tell’. Hence each piece is Uniquely Unique!

We are a small family business based in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. Our mission as a business is to handmake eye-catching pieces of furniture & lighting which are one-of -a-kind, designer pieces with a difference/ a conversation piece with ‘a story to tell’ similar to a bespoke painting. Metal and Mallet design and hand carve each unique piece from sustainably sought materials. incorporating eclectic design along with sustainably sought materials is what we strive to do.

We customise pieces also. You will notice from our website some pieces are sold, they remain on the site to give examples of pieces I have made. Each piece is bespoke, However, we can customise similar pieces shown.

Nicky O’Dwyer and Donnacha Ryan

I, Donnacha design, hand carve and create each piece using basic tools as I believe this allows the design process to organically evolve. I believe the materials I use ‘speak to me’. I respect the materials I use, not transforming them, but enhancing them into an Art form which is bespoke and unique.
