The Tree epitomizes Life itself, with its roots drawing up nourishment from the earth, its trunk soaring skyward & its branches reaching out towards the heavens. It is also a symbol of family & relationship: the Family Tree connects us to our past, rooting us in the ground from which we have come; the flowering branches speak of our future, new possibilities, & the next generations; the trunk is where we are now, bridging past & future, weathering changes. The trunk is the individual, while the roots & branches link us to the larger system of the planet, the extended human family to which we all belong. In a real sense all life is inter-related.
We are caught in a network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

The Wild Goose Studio
Since its foundation in 1970, Wild Goose Studio has sought its inspiration in Ireland's history, poetry and mythology. From the beginning, a group of skilled craft-workers in Kinsale, Co. Cork has maintained the tradition of high quality as the range of images has grown. The early experimental spirit of cofounders Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth remains to this day as Wild Goose broadens its horizons and expands its offering of award-winning gifts for friends, family and for you.
