Sean O’Donoghue was born in the south east of Ireland, an area rich in ancient crafts. At just fifteen years of age, he started his apprenticeship at Waterford Crystal. He spent thirteen years at Waterford, where he fulfilled his ambition of becoming a master glassblower. He found himself needing a new challenge which brought him to Australia. He now calls Queensland home. The natural beauty of Australia and his days at Waterford continues to inspire Sean to create his craft.
