Helen Hooker O'Malley Roelofs Sculpture Trust

"Helen O'Malley Roelofs' consuming passion was her art.  Among the many art forms she explored, sculpture ranked the highest.  She constantly revised her lists of people yet to be sculpted, and, in all, she completed about 350 heads and figures."

Cormac KH O'Malley, The Irish Sculptues of Helen Hooker O'Malley Roelofs 1905 - 1993 (University of Limerick Press, 1993) p 5

    "I recognised age eight
    Close link between hand and clay
    The soft, smooth wetness pleased my fingers,
    Was cold and slippery, ready to be shaped."
    - Discovery, 1979
