Island Turf Crafts
Island Turf Crafts traditional symbols of Irish heritage in peat turf from the ancient bogs of Ireland. 5000 Years ago the Great Elk wandered through the forests and mountains, it was a land of sweeping mists, gentle rain and soft sunlight. A land of pagan carvings and mysterious rituals. A land when the soothing lilt of the harp floated over the crystal lakes and rivers. It was a time of Cuchulainn and Queen Maeve and the Red Branch Knnights. This was, indeed the Celtic Twilight. Today Island Turf Crafts has captured the very essence of that era. Turf from the golden age has been excavated and processed to create a unique range of turf ornaments.
Large areas of Ireland are made up of boglands and Brian McGirr is making use of this vast resource to make small cultural pieces and bring a small piece of Ireland into your home.
