Bog Oak

About this project

This body of work is reflective of a uniquely Irish landscape and utilises a material indigenous to the country, bog oak. Bog-wood is wood from trees that have been buried in peat bogs and preserved from decay by the acidic and anaerobic bog conditions, for hundreds or even thousands of years. Research of the national collections of Bronze Age artefacts in combination with the physical nature of the material has engendered a body of work which is contemplative without relying on sentimentality.
