Landscape Platter

These platters are inspired by the outlines of the Irish mountainsides and their edges reflect this. The colours echo our surroundings and have splashes of blue glass to heighten the effect. They can also be wall hung.

Some of the pieces have stamps with stylized symbols representing our ancient heritage of ogham stones and celtic imagery. The pieces offer what I like to think of as a birds eye view of the Irish Landscape.
