Fluid Forms - Liam Flynn


Movement is a major theme in my work. Because I use green unseasoned wood, I like to treat the wood as if it were a malleable material; gently removing the excess from the inside, pushing the wood into fluid forms.

We are midway through our six week campaign to support the publication of Fluid Forms and, thanks to an overwhelming response, have far exceeded our funding target. We are truly grateful to our funders and everyone who has shared our links and posts. It is a measure of the regard for Liam Flynn.

We are continuing our fundit campaign to give possible supporters the opportunity to preorder their copy of Fluid Forms. Fluid Forms will be a permanent record of Liam’s achievement, and we want to honour his memory by distributing it as widely as possible.

We ask for you continued support by ensuring people are aware of (or reminded of!) this publication.
You can pre-order the book on our Fund:it site (40 euro/copy) @

Thank you for your support.

Mary Leahy
