About this Piece

Words have been cherished in Ireland since the first lines were carved on Ogham stones and they are celebrated in the song, poetry and the art of everyday conversation. After years in decline, Gaelic is experiencing a resurgence and its beauty can be seen in this award-winning design, originally carved by Adam Grabski. 

Grá means love.

Dimensions: 8.5 x 11.5 inches (21.5 x 29cm)

About the Maker

Fellow artists Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth founded Wild Goose Studio in 1970. 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.
It all starts with the marriage of an idea or meaning with an image. One of the artists will then carve that image into a sculpted piece which becomes the original from which they create a mold, so they can then faithfully reproduce the image in full detail.  The production process itself starts with metal powders such as bronze or cast iron which form the outer surface of the finished piece and the inner is created from a cold cast pouring.  Once the piece is set, they polish it to reveal the beauty hidden beneath.
Many of their pieces reflect Ireland's Celtic history, with its stone carvings and evocative language, while others are inspired by contemporary authors, philosophers, and the moments and milestones in life that shape our human experience.

I was delighted to come across this unique piece right after the sudden loss of my husband. I loved the simple modern feel of the metalwork yet the strength of the message behind it. Although an appropriate gift for someone at the beginning of their marriage journey, it also holds significance for me, to remember the love and journey we all continue with those we love and who have and continue to make an impact on our journey, even beyond the physical life. Also, shipping to US from Ireland was fast and the customer service was remarkable. I appreciated the hand written note from Aidan and that this among many other pieces, come from local artists in Ireland. What a great community of talented and kind people!

I saw this item recently in a gift shop while in Tipperary. When I returned home I searched the internet and found it at a really good price on Gifts of Ireland. It’s a wedding gift for my aunt and I know she will love it! The service was great and I highly recommend Gift of Ireland. I have already chosen other items I want to buy from them.
