Ancient Irish lore turned modern fine art

Fáilte, welcome to The Sleeping Giant, County Kerry & the home of Artist Ken Bolger.

Ken infuses his copper, slate, and stone work with the magic of West Kerry, Ireland. Each piece carries the very essence of ancient Ireland and the fresh energy of the Wild Atlantic Way by using locally sourced materials and incorporating elements of Celtic mythology and the Ogham script, Ireland’s ancient language of symbols.

Each piece is handmade in Ken’s workshop in Bellyferriter, set deep within the Dingle Peninsula. Because items are made-to-order, there can be slight variations compared to items listed in the shop. No two are the same, making each piece as unique as the place they come from. 

For custom work, demonstrations, or workshops, reach out to Ken directly at 

Welcome/Fáilte, to browse, shop and stay a while.
