Wild Goose Studio
Artists Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth founded Wild Goose Studio in 1970 amid the idyllic surroundings of Kinsale, County Cork. Together with other leading Irish artists, they created a unique range of artifacts that take inspiration from Ireland's rich cultural heritage and the contemporary world. Each piece starts with an inspiring thought, an image or an emotion and is given a physical form by their craftspeople.
Many of their pieces reflect Ireland’s Celtic history, such as Celtic crosses, Irish symbols, and other pieces of bronze wall art. Other works are framed pieces of Celtic design, capturing the tradition of Irish home décor familiar to families with Irish heritage all over the world. Some are inspired by contemporary authors, philosophers, and the moments and milestones in life that shape our human experience. Wild Goose Studios are an integral part of Gifts of Ireland and evoke a nostalgic admiration for the Ireland of old.
