Artist Statement: Tracing my ancestral roots to the Insular Celts of Ireland, I found myself drawn to their art work.  While it seems most people find fascination in the rich colors and intricate knotwork of Celtic art, I was drawn more to their forms, rather than the filigree. I found the shapes did not necessarily follow the classical proportions of the “golden ratio” but rather had a simpler symmetry and fluidity. This chalice embraces those design elements
