Holger Lönze

Sculptor

Holger Lönze (http://www.holgerlonze.info/) found Schull a few years ago when his car broke down – having decided to move to Ireland he was on an explorative journey when fate stepped in! Originally from Germany he studied in Ulster and has exhibited extensively in the UK, Europe and here in Ireland. His latest project is a ‘Sea Bell’ a huge bronze bell (https://www.facebook.com/bangorbell) commemorating Columbanus’ journey from Bangor to Italy. The bell is now finished and on it’s way north.

1. His favourite view is coming over the Barnageeha (not sure how to spell this!) Gap and he wouldn’t want any music playing.
2. He wishes he had taken up microlite flying 10 years ago.
3. If he has spare time he launches his currach and explores.
4. His preference is Murphy’s and a really well made margarita pizza.
5. A favourite night out would be on a calm evening in his currach watching the day fade and the stars come out.
6. He wanted to be a pilot when he was very young.
7. Holger would very much like a drier workshop – one with heating would be even better.

What is it about Schull and the Mizen that attracts people here? Who are the people who populate this quirky little village on the edge of Europe? Why do they come? How do they find us? What do they DO?

Here they tell their stories, responding to the same questions they all have very different answers.
