About the artist:

Mark explains his deep affection for Celtic items this way. "First I fell in love with an Irish woman and then I fell in love with all things Irish." My Irish and Celtic art is me trying to immerse myself into the learning of Ireland's colorful, sometimes violent and yet still friendly environment of both scenery and people. Special orders are available in both wood and slate. My carved wood and slate is done in Ogham . (Pronounced Ōhm)

Ogham is an Early Medieval alphabet used to write the early Irish language, and later the Old Irish language. There are roughly 400 surviving orthodox inscriptions on stone monuments throughout Ireland and western Britain. The Ogham "Welcome" reads bottom to top when vertical. Welcome is written in Irish, not English so the sign actually says Failte. Ireland is Eire, Love is Gra, etc.

Special orders available for the same price.
