Did You Know? The animals in the Beastia Collection were inspired by the myths and legends of the early Celts from Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Similar images, rendered in vibrant colors and remarkable detail, can be found in the rich and complex artwork on illuminated medieval Christian manuscripts.
About the Artist. Contemporary Celtic artist Elizabeth Rae Armstrong is passionate about Celtic designs, which she attributes to her family roots in Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. She is also passionate about glass, a temperamental and fragile artistic medium, due to her apprenticeship with a glass sculptor while in university. She has combined these two fascinations by establishing Aqua Vitae Stemware, a crystal company that deeply sand-etches Bohemian crystal wine, whiskey, and beer glasses, hand-engraving intricate Celtic designs onto each unique piece and enhancing them with a vividly colored Swarovski crystal.
