County Tyrone Artist, Colm McCann

unique Irish chess set using Bronze Age and Medieval Irish art and architecture

Gaelic art has never really gone out of fashion and it is a design continuum that stretches back thousands of years. Colm McCann carries this uniquely Celtic tradition forward into the 21st Century from his home in County Tryone. Killyliss studio was established in 1991 by the Irish Artist Colm McCann and has grown over the years to produce a range of Celtic inspired gifts which include chess sets, clocks, slate plaques, wall plaques, mirrors, pendants and brooches.

Colm is greatly influenced by the artwork of the early Celts and this is reflected in the gifts that he designs and produces. Each item is unique, handmade to the highest standard from a range of materials including cold cast metals, slate and cast limestone.

Colm McCann is a registered member of the Crafts Council of Ireland.
