Creating the perfect gift is our passion. Everything we make at the Claypipe Centre is individually handmade onsite. Each order is lovingly created, assembled and packed with care. We hope you love our pieces as much as we do!

The Claypipe Centre

We are a small family company located in the heart of the midlands of Ireland in a gorgeous village called Knockcroghery. Our Artisan workshop, based on the site of an old Claypipe Factory, is where we make everything by hand with the help of our amazing local staff. Here, we also operate a carefully selected gift shop full of gorgeous Irish made brands.

What is Ogham?

While uniquely Celtic, Ogham Wish has a universal appeal. Each Ogham Wish gift is accompanied by an explanatory text outlining the history of Ogham writing with the Gaelic and English translations. Ogham Wish artistically celebrates Ireland’s ancient culture and heritage.

Ogham writing is Ireland’s ancient script, often found inscribed on standing stones and in sacred places throughout Ireland’s rural landscape.

Ogham is the earliest known form of writing in Ireland. Originally it was inscribed on to standing stones, many of which can still be found today throughout the landscapes of Ireland, Scotland and Wales and date back from 400AD. It consists of 20 linear characters which are read from the bottom up.
