A Whale of a Time / Ships Ahoy

We had a fantastic summer with plenty of beautiful days and are taking a well earned break (we think) now that the cafe & gardens in Ahakista has closed for the season. However our shops in Schull & Kinsale are still open everyday during September & we have a few more designs in our raku ceramics range.

Here are a couple of the whales & a boat design which are for sale in Schull. Pop in & have a closer look at these & all the other exciting designs we have.

Kate Beagan - Irish Landscape & Urban Scenes Artist

As well as my own work, I also have work from other artists & one of these is Kate Beagan who lives in Co. Monaghan.

Kate uses primarily oils in a simplistic way and focuses on the shape, pattern & light capturing the colours of the subject matter & ultimately bringing you the essence of the subject matter. The winter / spring months bring the most diverse light which Kate depicts beautifully as a fleeting moment in time.

A few of her pieces which we have in our Schull shop are shown below & you can see more of Kate's work on her facebook page or at www.katebeaganartist.com 

'The Outhouse'

'Farm Sheds'

'End of Day'

'Shaft of Light'

Plastic Wreaths - Upcycled Beach Debris

There is so much to be discovered on our West Cork beaches but unfortunately not all of it is a natural beauty. Here are a couple of examples of what can be created from the excessive waste found on our beaches. From something ugly to a wonderfully bright uplifting decoration with a hint of fun for your house or garden.
