Hy Brasil’s Story

Hy-Brasil was a phantom island said to lie in the Atlantic Ocean west of Ireland. In Irish myths, it was believed to be clouded in mist except for one day every seven years, when it became visible but still could not be reached. Stories about the island have circulated throughout Europe for centuries, with tales declaring it was the promised land of saints or a paradise where an advanced civilization lived.

This piece of quince tree wood was found in The Danube Delta, on the shores of Sfântu Gheorghe, on a vibrant spring day. It must have been carried from very far away, washed away by the waters. 


The Crafting Process

This piece of wood was not cut from a living tree. It was found dry, on the ground. 

It needed cleaning, washing, brushing and sanding. It was also treated against harmful insects, pests and mold.
