Explanation on back reads:

The Wild Goose Studio
"I am still learning"

Even in his 87th year, the great Italian renaissance artist Michelangelo, creator of such masterpieces as the Sistine Chapel and the sculpture of David, is quoted as saying "Ancora Imparo" (I am still learning). Given the scope of his achievement in painting, sculpture, poetry and architecture, this humility is striking and strongly reminiscent of the Greek philosopher Socrates - 

"The wise man knows that he knows nothing."

Designed by Kathleen Smyth

Cast by Hand at the wild goose studio
Kinsale, Co. Cork, Ireland

 

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.
