Looking for a quieter, slower pace of life Maura O’Connell relocated with her family to West Cork from the city just over 12 years ago. On a career break from an Adult Guidance Counselling role she was on the lookout for a creative outlet and found life-casting. She spent several years teaching herself this new craft and honing her skills before setting up her business, West Cork Casting Studio, from her home near Dunmanway.
Her business is the perfect coming together of her artistic ability, her interest in people and their connections to their past. Her life-casting work specialises in family keepsakes that capture a moment in time forever. In addition to her life-casting service, she offers bespoke fingerprint keepsake jewellery. A lover of nature, Maura also makes plaster tiles and silver jewellery using impressions from the nature that surrounds her.
