Shamrocks evoke immediate thoughts of Ireland, and for good reason. The shamrock has been used as an Irish national symbol since the 18th century, much like the thistle is used in Scotland and the rose in England. The plant was considered sacred to the Irish Druids due to its cluster of three heart-shaped leaves. Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is said to have used the shamrock as a metaphor for the Christian holy trinity. Today, it is featured on many buildings as a decorative motif, lampposts, postcards, and postage stamps. Our beautiful stained-glass panel proudly features hand-painted shamrocks in celebration of the Irish national heritage, history, and culture.
Celtic knots are distinctive symbols, perhaps some of the most recognizable artwork in Celtic history. The knots have been a part of Celtic and Irish artwork for centuries; they first started appearing in history around 450 A.D. There are many possible meanings for the knots--many related to the knots’ endless nature. In the pattern, there is no discernible beginning or end, which is sometimes said to be a reflection of the timeless nature of the spirit, an uninterrupted life cycle, and the infinite cycle of birth and rebirth in both the physical and spiritual realms. In ancient times, gifts adorned with these mystic knots often bestowed best wishes for the longevity of luck with new endeavors--perfect for a housewarming, wedding, or other special occasions.
