Tread Softly Framed

Wild Goose Studio Tread Softly Framed $109.00


Tread softly

Inspired by the W.B. Yeats poem He wishes for the cloths of Heaven, which is a paean to the strength embodied in humility and how love comes wrapped in generosity.

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,

Enwrought with golden and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths  

Of night and light and the half light,  

I would spread the cloths under your feet:

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;  

I have spread my dreams under your feet;  

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Created by artist Nadia Corridan and carved by Adam Grabski.

Dimensions: 7.5 x 15.5 inches (19 x 40 cm)

Artists Brian Scott-McCarthy and Kathleen Smyth founded the Wild Goose Studio in 1970.  Together with other leading Irish artists, they created a unique range of artefacts that take their inspiration from their rich cultural heritage and the contemporary world.  Each piece starts with an inspiring thought, an image or an emotion and is given a physical form by their craftspeople.
