Map of Ireland Wall Art, Personalised Irish Christmas Gift, Ireland Art, Handmade Irish Gifts, Irish Anniversary Gift, Galway Ireland Gift, There's no Place like Home.
Newly designed and crafted, this map of Ireland wall art is the perfect gift for anyone with a connection to Ireland! Handcrafted by Furniture Designer-Maker and Woodturner Cian Magill, it holds a truly unique story. It is made from an Oregon/ Big-Leaf Maple tree (that lived in the Library Square, on the Trinity College Dublin grounds since ca. 1845).
Native to the Pacific Northwest of America and Canada, the 175 year-old Maple displays beautiful and rare ‘figured’ grain details such as ‘spalting’ and ‘cats-paw' burl. Shimmering ‘Curly Maple’ streaks are also visible. ‘Spalting’ is any form of wood colouration caused by fungi, and is sought after by woodworkers for it’s unique patterns. ‘Cats-paw’ is a type of burl wood where little dots form in a pattern. The grain surrounding these dots is usually particularly interesting, as it twists and glistens off light. Finished in natural linseed oil with respect, care, and love.
The pinpoint and location can be personalised to anywhere you wish. This is engraved in the beautiful old Gaelic font 'Bunchló', used in Ireland by our ancestors until the mid 20th century.
