Originality of Design
Celtic designs have an ancient heritage, but most of the designs on this site
are original or are old designs re-worked for contemporary artistic use.
Because Celtic Art often is used to make a link to the distant past it is
often misunderstood that genuine designs can only be copied from antiquity.
This is unfortunate because artistic integrity demands that the designer
create a new manifestation of the art, unique to present times.
As a living art form, Celtic Art can only be sustained by pursuing the goal of
mastery of the creative process that ultimately results in new and imaginative
work. The Celtic jewelry and artwork shown here is not an imitation of historical Celtic
Art but rather an affirmation that new and original creations are authentic
continuations of that artistic heritage.
The work illustrated on these
pages represent the creative effort of Stephen Walker and various other
craftsmen and designers. With the
exceptions of several of the simplest knots, none of these designs should be
considered public domain. It is
commonly and wrongly supposed that all Celtic designs are ancient and therefore
free from copyright restrictions. The
truth is that new, traditionally correct designs often look as if they could be
very old, but they are none-the-less intellectual property of the artist.
