Explanation on back reads:

The wild goose studio
Cead Mile Failte
(Pronounced: kayad meele folicha)

The traditional Gaelic greeting which means
"A hundred thousand welcomes."

The Celts respect the significance of the welcome as a threshold or rite of passage. Among Celts there is a wide recognition of the significance of chance meetings and random events (synchronicities), with a renowned openness to new experiences, opportunities and people. Characterized by the expansive and generous nature of this phrase "cead mile failte".

SHAMROCKS, the traditional symbol of Ireland, represent the good luck that can come when we are open to the possibilities associated with new meetings.

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive."

Q. How are the Studio's designs made?
A. All Wild Goose's work is handmade by skilled craft-workers using a cold cast method. Each piece has a shell of pure cast iron or bronze backed by a resin and ceramic core. Any variations in finish are part of its appeal.
