Over the years we have visited numerous art galleries, however most seemed to exude an air of exclusivity which was quite off putting, so when we opened in 2007, we wanted a gallery that is open and accessible to all. We actively encourage people to come in and browse, to ask as many questions as you want. (btw. there are no stupid questions)
We’re located in Francis St. near Christ Church, St Patrick’s Cathedral and the Guinness Storehouse…
We want to also increase the profile of ceramic art in Ireland. We now have a selection of beautiful ceramic sculptures.
In 2020, (yes in the middle of a pandemic) we moved to new premises in 57 Francis St. with our business partner, Niall Mullen of Niall Mullen Antiques. Niall specialises in Art Deco Furniture.
So, the next time you are in the area, call in and say hi…!

A little bit about Zozimus ….!
Michael Moran was born about 1794, in Faddle Alley, near Clanbrassil street. A fortnight after birth he went stone blind from illness, and became “thereby a blessing to his parents, who were soon able to send him to rhyme and beg at street corners and at the bridges over the Liffey”.
The best-known of his religious tales was one about St. Mary of Egypt and Bishop Zozimus.
The poem was so popular and so often called for, that Moran was soon nicknamed Zozimus, and by that name is he remembered. Link below to “Last of the Gleeman” by W.B.Yeats https://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/yeats/twi/twi14.htm
