A Wooden Mushroom Paperweight Ornament with its original Bark. Feast your eyes on this adorable mushroom paperweight, handcrafted in Co. Galway, Ireland, by Furniture Designer-Maker Cian Magill. The natural wooden mushroom with bark is made from native Irish Ash (mushroom), and sacred Irish Hawthorn (base). This wood-turned mushroom is the perfect Irish gift for him. The gift can also be a personalised wooden paperweight, as I engrave a message of your choice underneath the base. This is engraved into the wood using the beautiful old Gaelic font - 'Bunchló'.
This piece is like no other on the market and is inspired by ancient Celtic Ireland and our ancestry.
"I love working with native and local materials. To be able to go and carefully select each piece of wood individually, discover it's beautiful and unique characteristics, and turn a raw log into a functional product, fills my heart with supreme joy and respect and gratitude when working with such hardwoods.''
From tree to machine, you can now bring this miniature sculpture to life. This piece evolved through prototyping and the design process and holds its own story. Grain detail go leor, it is hard to believe that one day the strong and sacred Ash and Hawthorn trees that this piece is made from, were merely seedlings that then evolved through history.
Creations are made to order so although the design will be the same, details in grain will vary, giving each piece its own personality. All pieces are unique and sustainable, using ethically sourced materials.
