Ogham Plaques by Ray James

Ogham Plaque

Ray’s interest in Irish culture and heritage has been an influence in his art work. This led him to create these Ogham Plaques, which are made using the technique of ‘Pyrography’ (a form of wood burning).  They come in a range of words with the Ogham symbol for that word above.

Ogham served as an alphabet for one of the ancient Celtic lanquages and dates back to between the 3rd and 6th century. Ogham inscriptions are found exclusively in Ireland, Scotland and Wales. While all surviving Ogham inscriptions are on stone, it was probably more commonly inscibed on sticks, stakes and trees.

The size of these wooden plaques are approximately 20 x 07cm.  Made from reclaimed wood, they are treated with natural oils to preserve them. Suitable for interior and exterior display.

These plaques can be ordered at a cost of €5.95 each. Please contact us for further details (info@opalcentre.com)
