More than almost anything else, our families help shape us into who we are. Like a tree's roots, families ground us and nurture our development. Like the trunk, they provide stability and protection no matter what winds may blow. And like the branches, they help us blossom and reach for the sky. Celebrate your family, and all that they have given you, with this charming Celtic Family Tree.

Did You Know?

Every piece from Wild Goose Studio is handmade by skilled craft-workers using a cold cast method. Any variations in finish are part of the unique appeal.
