Níl aon tinteán mar do thinteán féin – Framed Ceramic Wall Art

Probably the best-known Irish saying, ” Níl aon tinteán mad do thinteán féin” meaning ” there is no fireside like your own fireside”, is impressed into this ceramic wall art to create this Irish language gift, made in Ireland. The piece, which is textured with wallpaper patterns, is made by hand from flat pieces of clay, textured imprinted with text and a simple house and red heart decoration. Fired once to 1000′ and painted with a wash of blue and a pop of glossy red glaze and returned to the kiln for a second firing. Once completed, the pieces are framed in white wooden frames with no glass to allow the ceramic tile texture to be seen and touched to create the perfect hanging ceramic wall art.

“I love to use a line or quote that strikes a happy chord in your memory; the phrases I’ve chosen for the ‘Home Comforts’ range are those we’d hear throughout Ireland and some farther afield…however they do feel intrinsically linked to my home, everyone loves these house and red heart pieces, the perfect Irish gifts.”

Each piece is carefully wrapped in sustainable packing, tissue, eco bubble wrap, corrugated card and boxed to ensure its safe journey to you, making the perfect eco friendly gift.

The frame size is 21 x 29 x 3 cm, and it weighs approx 900g

This is beautiful, great quality. Looks lovely hanging on my wall. I bought it for myself after seeing a friend here in Australia giving one as an engagement gift. I love it and it gets lots of great comments.
