We (Danny and myself) have been making and selling for years. We traveled the length and breath of Germany with our stall selling everywhere and anywhere from markets to festivals to pedestrian zones.

We sold various things, some bought but mostly made ourselves. Our wares changed over the years from purely Celtic in the beginning, to handmade jewelry, t-shirts, wooden fish mobiles(?), plaster wall plaques, neon, gothic and tribal stuff, and of course skulls of various materials.

We eventually left Berlin (corporate stress!) and moved to Ireland where the stall was retired and put to pasture. Now with kids, guinea pigs, cats and too many dogs we decided to focus on different things.

I’ve always been interested in health, physically, mentally and spiritually and the opportunity came along to study Zen Shiatsu, which I did, for 3 years, and this year I‘ll be graduating as a fully qualified practitioner.

Danny started working with stone, building dry stone walls, erecting headstones and lettering. He was lucky to be taken in by two well-known Celtic cross carvers, who instructed him in the traditional methods of carving the local blue limestone. He now works from home here in county Kilkenny, carving celtic crosses and the occasional skull.

Last year after talking with a local potter we thought we’d get back into working with ceramics and the skulls were born. First Frankenskull appeared out of the vapor followed closely by the Day of the Dead skulls and the others, and the process continues. With the versatility and freedom provided by the material (clay) it's impossible to say what will emerge out of the swamp.

So that’s the story up to now. Thanks for coming by and hope you enjoy the pieces.
