The SLATED Shandon Bells.
The bells, the bells, so iconic in Cork City, there is a song written all about them, The Bells of Shandon.
The Church of St Anne’s is a truly beautiful Church majestically perched above Cork City, but to us it’s the tower that holds the magic. Climb the 132 steps to the top and you will be rewarded by being able to give the bells a ring. And you will be able to see the mechanisms of one of the largest caged clocks in Europe.
Here at SLATED we feel the best way to honour some of Ireland’s Landmarks and Special Places, is to Carve them in Stone.
We are delighted to team up with the wonderfully talented artist Killian Fitzpatrick who helped us create our vision of the Shandon Bells.
All our slate pieces are cut by hand with a 150 year old slaters knife by Ed Hammond in our Dublin studio. Making each piece completely unique. Our beautiful natural slate pieces all have their own individually textured surface, being uniquely ridged or veined. Every product is backed with felt feet to prevent slippage.
Each SLATED piece is hand packed in our signature gift packaging, before making its way to your home to be used and loved.
If you would like to read more about the history of SLATED, we were featured in this lovely article all about our family heritage in The Irish Times.
