Funeral of Pierre Toulhoat

The funeral of Pierre Toulhoat takes place this afternoon. He died on October 13th at the age of 91. He was a master craftsman in ceramics, stained glass, fabric and metal. Born in Quimper (Breton: Kemper) in  Finistère (Breton: Penn-ar-Bed) his native Brittany and its legends inspired much of his work including that of the lost underwater City of Ys. It can also be seen in his beautifully made Celtic jewellery of triskels, knotwork, torques, Celtic-crosses and other intricate designs. His work remains with us and we celebrate his life. His funeral will take place this afternoon, 12:00 to 2:30 p.m. in the church Ergue Armel.
