Liam Curtin is a visual artist. During the last 20 years he has been commissioned to create a range of public artworks such as The Blackpool High Tide Organ, which he made with John Gooding in 1996. The 15meter tall sculpture turns waves in to musical chords. Other work includes small bronze pavements jewels which create a complex puzzle in East Oxford. These projects have all involved collaboration with a wide range of people including engineers, musicians, astronomers and poets.
Liam has been involved with a number of regeneration projects often using temporary artworks as a form of consultation with local people. He regularly gives talks about this method of creating a dialogue between various groups through art.
Liam Curtin spent many years making ceramics, he set up Majolica Works with Wendy Jones in 1986 and their pots can be seen in various museum collections.
Liam has also made a short film, commissioned and composed music and is a keen amateur pianist.
Liam appeared in the BBC Coast programme on 10 June – you can see the Blackpool high tide organ in action at 39 minutes into the programme – and Liam playing the Wurlitzer organ!
