Ogham Irish Slate Piece-Large
‘Ogham’ piece hand carved on Slate from the Wicklow mountains, with copper spiral detail, made by artist Derek Lyons. Ogham is an early medieval alphabet used to write the Irish language. Many examples can still be seen today engraved in stone around the Irish countryside. Each individual piece of slate has it’s own characteristics of colour, texture and fracturing, and is hand worked to bring out it’s natural qualities, so each piece is totally unique.
This piece comes in a black frame and can be personalised for no extra cost. Very popular for Wedding or Anniversary gifts. Hand carved with the words ‘Slainte, Gra, Sonas’ (Health, Love, Happiness) it makes a lovely sentiment. Can be ordered with no names or dates, just the Irish word and carving, but if you would like it personalised please contact us. English translation is written on the backing board along with the artists signature. Also available in a small size with just one word of your choice.
