A part of history.. a part of us.. the root of the creations
Since its foundation in 1969, Wild Goose Studio has sought its inspiration in Ireland's history, poetry and mythology.
From the beginning, a group of skilled craft-workers in Kinsale, Co. Cork has maintained the tradition of high quality as the range of images has grown. The early experimental spirit of Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth remains to this day as Wild Goose broadens its horizons and expands its offering of award-winning gifts for friends, family and for you.
