About

Crann Dubh - Gaelic for "Black Tree" . Carvings and bog wood sculptures by Rónán Lynch

I live in the midland of Ireland . I enjoy carving and working with wood.

I unearth my own bog woods in my fields and surrounding boglands. Bog woods are ancient remnants of the past. Preserved in the acidic damp conditions of the bog for 1000's of years, the Bog Oak turns a jet black over time (tannins in the wood reacting to acidic conditions)average age 2000-4000 years old , the Bog Yew is a rarer wood to find and older , it has mixes of purples and reds in its wood, it can be aged up to 7000 years old.

I collect , dry/season these woods over years. alot of cleaning takes place once dry and than searching for solid wood to work with and forms.
Working with Bog woods is a lengthly slow process from harvesting to carving and finishing, but the results can be spectacular, and the transformation incredibly satisfying.

I also work with hardwoods local and foreign. I carve irish oak, beech , irish sycamore, mahogany, iroko , cedar, pear and a few others . I am available for commisions.
