Design Influence

The Irish wake has long been regarded as the most healthy way to say goodbye. Taking time, surrounded by the people you love, helping each other come to terms with the loss and move slowly through the grieving process. The Irish Wake Toast allows all present to Raise a Glass to a life well-lived. The Irish wake set is used before, during, or after the wake by the closest of family or friends to wish them well on their journey. With soothing Irish Music, the scent of Ireland, why not pour a wee deoch (Juk) of Irish Whiskey and make the last Toast? The toast whether off the cuff, or a traditional toast, is in itself an act of healing that can is repeated on other special days and celebrations. Watch the fascinating video by Kevin Toolis and the BBC  called My Father's Wake -  secrets of the Irish Wake.

Ciarán- Artist, Ceramicist, designer

Ciarán, an Irish language speaker has a love of Irish history and design. He ties his Irish heritage creations with his own glazes for his Celtic Cremation Urns. A range of locally inspired colors fired in his self-made kiln. Ciarán studied and lectured in Art and Design as well as being a highly regarded Ceramicist for the last 30 years. He lives with his family on the banks of the historical Carlingford Lough. Image below is some detailing on the Bean na heireann Irish Harp Urn
Carlingford, one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. The Cooley Mountains on one side and ’ the mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea’ on the other. Each of his Celtic Cremation Urns represents our history, our people and the colors found on land and sea. As Ciarán says, “they are each an expression of Ireland”. Ciarán walked the coast, fields, and mountains looking for the colors he wanted to inspire his glazes. He then went about mixing and testing the glazes to match his imagination. According to Ciarán you need to be as much a Chemist as a Ceramicist to get it just right. He spent months and months perfecting the colors that don’t truly show themselves until after firing. The combination of form, design, and the glaze has made his unique pieces much sought after. His work has been commissioned and presented to many dignitaries including An Taoiseach -Our Leader -The Irish Prime Minister and also the President of Ireland.
