Carr, Cathy

Original Handmade Glass Beads and Jewellery by Cathy Carr

(705) 670-8889 or ccarr@isys.ca

 

All of my beads are one of a kind pieces of art.   No two are the same.

The glass I use is Moretti, Effetre or Vetrofond.  They are the same types of glass used in Murano, Italy.  I also use glass from Germany, China and the USA.

 

Glass rods are melted in a flame.  Molten glass is wound onto a mandrel and shaped with tools.  This technique is known as lampwork and has been around for centuries.

Some beads contain fine silver foil, wire or mesh which is 99.9% pure silver.  The designs in the beads are achieved by layering different colours of glass.  Some beads take a few minutes to create, while other more complicated ones may take up to an hour.

 

All beads are kiln annealed for strength and durability.

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Sudbury Irish Arts Association Inc.

Contact Name: Crystal McCollom, Chair

CCE SIAAI concerns itself with the development of an environment conducive to: promoting traditional Irish music and arts in all forms; promoting, in particular, the playing of the harp and uilleann pipes locally; promoting Irish traditional dancing and singing with the traditional music; fostering and promoting the use of the Irish language; creating a closer bond among all lovers of Irish music and culture.

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Sudbury Irish Arts Association Inc. (a non-profit, charitable organization) was originally formed on March 17, 1996 under the name Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann Sudbury Branch.  Our finances are reviewed and we carry on a number of fundrasing activities during the year, including membership fees, events and ticket sales.  We have a Board of Directors and a Constitution and Bi-Laws (March 2009).  Since the begining, we have produced 14 Irish Celtic fairs (attendance from 600 – 1200), and ran a variety of weekly programs, large community shows (e.g. Echoes of Erin) and preformed in countless venues.  At the last Echos of Erin Irish show hosted in the community, there were 700-800 attendees and 45 volunteer participants.  We also train local adult singers, dancers and speakers of Irish, and also children to dance, sing, speak Irish, Irish crafts, do plays, and play fiddles and tin whistles.  Our programs are provided on a weekly basis to children, youth and adults.  We also run a week long Irish Summer school which is attended by (average) 10 – 30 children.  Our activities in public are usually directed towards all ages including seniors of any ethnicity.  We regularly perform for the residents of Long-Term Care facilities.  More recently we have organized a number of ceili dances (80 – 100 attendance).  Our dancers and Irish speakers attend events and competitions across the province.  We have now been funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation to provide set dancing (similar to square dancing) lessons in the community.  This is all been possible because of a core group od dedicated community volunteers.

The objectives/activities for which the corporation is incorporated are:

-To educate and increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of the arts by providing performances of an artistic nature in public places, senior citizens homes, churches, community centres and educational institutions and by providing seminars on topics relating to such performances.

-To provide instructional seminars on topics related to the performing and visual arts.

-To produce performing arts festivals for the purposes of educating and advancing the public’s understanding and appreciating of Irish culture.
