Along the sides of the shaft a well known Irish Blessing is engraved "May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks".

This mother daughter artist team own and run this family business. Both of them are gifted in carving and design. Each object they handcraft is inspired by an actual carved stone monument and has a reference to the time period and culture it was taken from. Once a monument is selected, the piece is hand carved by the artists and a mold is made. Each of the molds are cast with a sturdy cast stone material and goes through several steps to make it look as close to the ancient stone carvings as possible.  These pieces are a wonderful architectural adornment in the home as well as in the garden. They represent a tie to our rich past and can be enjoyed for years to come.
