Unique Artwork Handcrafted in Ireland
Our unique artworks are all handcrafted in Ireland.
All handmade pieces are crafted as an expression of creativity and potential. You are buying something that is more beautiful because it is made with heart and giving expression to spirit.
No two handmade items are exactly alike. Variations in colour, texture, shape and size are part of the beauty of handmade items. Every single piece is one-of-a-kind, reflecting the ever-changing world of nature.
UgBug was one of the (many) characters that frequented my daughters childhood. A fictional 'alter ego' who was invented and grew with our imaginations. His appearance and origin were indeterminate, though it was generally agreed that he/she was green. He/she was at times a little scary, certainly endearing, sometimes needy and usually unpredictable. UgBug materialised as a distraction on car journeys; as an incentive to get to bed, and just for fun and laughter at all times.
So when it came to deciding on a name for this endeavour, UgBug was the obvious choice. The name conjures up creativity, taking chances and above all enjoyment of all that life brings.
We hope our UgBug designs bring you the same joy.
Our arts and crafts take inspiration from the diversity of Ireland’s landscapes. Based on the east coast, south of Dublin, we have an abundance of rocky shorelines, the Wicklow mountains and forests on our doorstep. Not to mention the busy capital of Dublin city a short train ride away.
