Paddy is famous both in Ireland and abroad for his unique style in creating beautiful one off pieces and his exceptional ability to craft with Irish Bog Oak. This most special material is an extremely hard almost fossilised wood that is steeped in the echoes of Irelands past. The wood itself is in many cases aged between eight to ten thousand years old. Paddy’s work with this special material carries on the reverence our Celtic ancestors held for this precious resource.
