BIO: Elizabeth Petcu

 

Principal Flute in the Radio Telefís Éireann Concert Orchestra for over twenty-five years, an MA in Music Therapy from Limerick University and, more recently, a Higher National Diploma in Fine Art merge to give Elizabeth’s porcelain work an enriched flavour. Her creations rapidly came to the attention of the public when she won both a Sculpture in Context Award in the Botanic Gardens and The Gallery Zozimus Purchase Award in 2011. Her first solo show was a sell-out in The Kilternan Gallery in 2009. Signal Arts Centre in Bray hosted an exhibition see no where with Elizabeth’s work in May 2012 and concurrently Hearing Silence, the short documentary about Elizabeth had its television premier. Two dragon egg lamps featured last April (2013) in the Show House at the Ideal Homes Exhibition in the RDS. Images of her work have appeared in the Ceramics Ireland Magazine, The Irish Arts Review, The Irish Times and on the cover of the Health Research Board Annual Report 2013.
