"Fáilte" created by my careful hand folding of the pages of a book.
Used in both Scot's and Irish Gaelic, fáilte (pronounced "fahl-sha"), literally translates as 'welcome', and is a popular, warm greeting, often adopted as house & cafe names too.
A real conversation piece of art ♥
Photos shown are of past pieces, most of which have gone to their new forever homes. I create this art by carefully hand folding the pages of reclaimed pre-owned & vintage books, therefore each item is unique and exact colours and final appearances naturally vary from book to book.
