Wejchert’s large-scale sculptural works in innovative materials including coloured perspex, plexiglass and neon became emblematic of the new spirit of progress in 1970s Ireland. Wejchert also worked very successfully in metal, her giant stainless steel piece outside the former Allied Irish Bank Centre in Ballsbridge and her golden wall-relief in the Irish Life Building in Low- er Abbey Street are two standout works. She also received many major commissions from businesses and in- stitutions including the Bank of Ireland; University College Dublin, and Trinity College Dublin.
