KINDRED SPIRITS UNIQUE
Five thousand years ago, all of Ireland was covered in trees. Then the climate changed and peat formed around them, an inch for every ten years, until parts of the country were embedded in thirty feet of bog. Then the peat was farmed for fuel and the ancient forests were revealed beneath the bog. That timber was not seen as precious. It was used as firewood in famine times and carved into Victorian bric-a-brac. It was associated with decay.
Drawing on the Irish landscape for their inspiration, the artists of the Celtic Roots Studio create sculptural pieces of contemporary beauty and ancient meaning, linking Ireland's present with the natural richness of its distant past. From bog oak, yew and pine - all of it almost five millennia old - they handcraft elegant shapes and dramatic forms, the lines of landscape and its people.
Each piece is individually crafted from this unique material in our workshop.
