Artwood ,Oak Fiddler Sphere

Sale price€65,00

This is a unique wood and crystal Large Moon Suncatcher which we make in Co. Leitrim, Ireland. The wood is engraved with a poem composed by the late, great W.B. Yeats. 

We use ethically and locally sourced Irish wood and high-quality Egyptian Asfour crystals.

When hung in a window the sunlight catches the crystal, which acts as a prism and disperses rainbows all around your room. 

The poems that we use are “The Lake Isle of Innisfree”, “Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven” and “The Fiddler of Dooney”. These poems are inscribed in full on to our Wooden Moon Suncatchers.

This makes a perfect gift for lovers of poetry, Yeats enthusiasts or anyone who likes to “dance like a wave of the sea”. 

This listing is for our Large Irish Yeats Quote gift Moon Suncatcher. You may also like our Medium Moon W.B. Yeats Suncatcher. Our Medium Moon W.B. Yeats Suncatchers have a quote inscribed on them, just a sprinkling of Yeats’ magic.

The wooden moon is approximately 6.5 inches (165mm) long at its longest part.

The Suncatcher comes with a choice of crystals, namely:

  • Angel: a 1.2″ (30mm) ∅ Sphere Asfour crystal with Tibetan silver wings, a 0.5″(14mm)∅ Asfour crystal head and a Preciosa crystal crown, or
  • Sphere: a 1.5″ (40mm) ∅ Sphere Asfour crystal (round ball shape), or
  • Sun: a 1.75″ (45mm)∅ Sun Asfour crystal (flat disc shape)

We protect the wood by using approximately 4-6 coats of Danish Oil. We also use extremely strong, high quality braided fishing line to hang our suncatchers. Moreover, this string does not degrade in sunlight and therefore is ideal for hanging in a sunny window.

The string measures approx 16″ (400mm) from the top of the moon to the metal hoop which is used for hanging.

Please be aware that we have designed our suncatchers for indoor use and have not tested them outdoors.

Because all wood is unique and varies slightly, your exact suncatcher may differ from the above images in this listing. Without a doubt, we will make sure that each and every piece is of equal natural beauty. We aim for 100% satisfaction with our Irish Yeats quote gift from Ireland.

In Irish Folklore, wood has undeniably a strong relationship with the Irish people. They believed the trees to be sacred and magical. In addition, each tree has its own inherent properties.

OAK is the sacred tree of the druids and ancient Celts. It is the tree of strength, endurance, prosperity and triumph. It bestows stamina, vitality and fertility.

In Feng Shui wood is the element of “new beginnings”. What’s more, in the home it has a positive effect on growth, healthy energy and family life.

Crystals bring positive energy into homes. They particularly bestow hope, joy and good luck. They activate positive and diffuse negative energy. A hanging crystal such as this Large Irish Yeats quote gift Moon Suncatcher can help to bring balance and calm into your space. They are especially useful in a Yoga room or meditation space.

Perfect for that special gift.
