Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth founded the Wild Goose Studio in 1970 with a vision of awakening the imagination through a fusion of thought, feeling and image. Together with other leading Irish artists, they have created a unique range of artefacts which combine heritage with the contemporary. Their studio is based in the picturesque coastal town of Kinsale, Co. Cork, famous for its rich history and reputation for good food. Like many of the GlenAran brands, their products are handmade by skilled craft-workers and any variations in finish are part of its unique appeal. Each piece has a skin of pure metal – either bronze or cast iron – backed by a resin and ceramic core. Their unique picture frames depicting messages and sayings translated into the Irish mother tongue, represent the perfect Celtic gift for any occasion.
