Ancient Ireland was covered in dense wooden forests of oak. In recent years a lot of the felled trees have been uncovered in our bogs during the land reclamation.
The acidic and anaerobic nature of the peat has preserved the timber resulting in what we now call Bog Oak.
Our wood is all sourced from fields and bogs on and around County Kerry in the South West of Ireland.
Pieces are hundreds even thousands of years old, so every piece is a link to our rich past.
Every piece that is found or excavated is brought home and store in a shed to dry out. It can take several years for a piece to dry out enough to be ready for carving.
Once a piece of bog wood is brought to the workshop, it is cleaned of any loose wood and carved to accentuate the woods natural shape. A coat of oil is then applied to the finished product to replace the resins lost during the drying and sculpting process.
A true work of natural art , great display piece.
