9 / 11 Tribute
Sean’s place in Waterford Crystal folklore was assured when he engraved the iconic image of Fr Mychal Judge, New York City Fire Department’s Chaplain, being carried out of the rubble of the World Trade Centre on 9/11. Sean said “American people kept me in a job for 30 years, so I wanted to do something to honour 9/11. I started working on it during my free time in July 2006. I spent weekend and evenings, I got completely wrapped up in it.
Miracle on Stairwell B
In 2011 Sean Egan was commissioned by American Ambassador Dan Rooney to create a sculpture to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Sean immediately thought of the story of, ‘Miracle on Stairwell B’and from this drew his inspiration to create his sculpture, which is a visual representation of one of the few ‘good news’ stories that came from the tragic events of September 11th, 2001.
The Fish Bowl
The goal of this creation is to capture two contrasting worlds – man’s turbulent world versus the natural peace and co-existence of nature. This unique engraving takes us underwater to view life from nature’s perspective.
