A flower of more pretentious worth…
A flower of more pretentious worth… – vintage illustrations and verse inspired by imagery from the 1800’s on a Ceramic Tile Art.
Each ceramic is individually printed and hand-finished in our Galway studio. They are float-mounted in a real-wood handmade frame.
- Framed Ceramic in Deep Box Frame : 285mm x 235mm (11 inches x 9 inches)
- Handmade in Ireland
These designs are inspired by the very early Greeting Cards from the 1800's and early 1900's. The images along with the various verses capture the essence and innocence of an Ireland at that time.
These greeting cards with their romanticised illustrations of Ireland would have evoked strong memories for the Irish at home and abroad. The beautiful cards would have made them feel proud of the special country they came from - Ireland.
A flower of more pretentious worth
Can not more plainly tell
the triple faith I have in thee
Thou Shamrock of the del.
Each Ceramic Print is individually produced ensuring attention to detail and uniqueness - no two are exactly the same.
The images are printed and pressed one at a time onto our specially coated ceramic art tile. The design and framing gives a lovely warmth and unique character to the piece.
