life long interest in art eventually brought Catherine
Crowe to experiment with enamels. She was drawn at first
to the vivid colours and timeless nature of the medium.
Her true inspiration came, however, when she travelled to
Ireland, her father's native land, to study traditional
music in 1984. It was there that she discovered that the
Celts were Europe's first enamellists.
|"For primitive man, there was a direct relationship between nature, life, religion, and art. In modern technological society this direct connection is cut, life is compartmentalized and the primitive sense of unity is lost. I hope, in my work, to communicate some of that lost sense of unity."|
