The ‘Wedding Piece’
'Ogham' piece hand carved on Slate from the Wicklow mountains, with copper spiral detail, made by artist Derek Lyons. This piece contains the Irish words 'Slainte, Gra, Sonas' which in English means 'Health, Love, Happiness'….a lovely sentiment and is immensely popular as a Wedding Gift. Each piece can be personalised with the happy couples names and the date of the Wedding, for no extra cost. The slate piece pictured comes encased in a handmade wooden frame (black or white available, size 39x26cm). Personalised pieces will take up to 7 working to dispatch.
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.
