Knot Work
Knotwork originates from the three dimensional crafts such as plaiting and weaving. It was the Celtic craftsmen who took the art to its extreme,
creating the intricate knotwork that instantly evokes their culture. The unbroken lines of these interlaced decorations can represent eternal spiritual growth or the timeless nature of our spirit. Knotwork is integral to the following designs:

Spirals
Elaborate Celtic spirals radiate out from the centre, creating a triskele or swastika in the centre. The central spiral rotates in the opposite direction to the outer spirals helping to create a sense of calm at the core of the swirling patterns. The key to Celtic spiral work is balance.

Zoomorphic Designs 
Zoomorphism is the shaping of something in animal form or terms. Zoomorphic and anthopomorphic ornaments are symbols which show us that nothing is as it first appears. Often, such artwork looks like a beautiful mosaic of miscellaneous design and color until, upon closer examination, one identifies a head, or a tail, or a plant, all of which are interwoven with each other
