Tom Allison, of Sneem, Co. Kerry is a talented blacksmith whose artistry we were happy to discover on our travels. More hand forged artistry on the way, but we wanted to showcase a few of his original designs to start.
The St. Bridgid’s Cross is still made in Ireland today and those made by Naomh Padraig are among the finest. It is a tradition in Ireland to place a St. Bridgid Cross over the doorway of a home and is believed to bless and protect the "comings and the goings". A sweet tradition to carry on and makes a lovely gift for newlyweds or a first home. The weaving by Naomh Padraig is well known in Ireland and it is our pleasure to showcase her work.
The 3 Arm St. Bridgid Cross is a variation in the traditional design and is unique.
" I received the crosses today and they are indeed beautiful, even more so knowing that the artist has worked with care. One for my classroom, one for my house' San Mateo, CA.
