Standing On A Beach
Claire is a fused glass artist based in Fife.
Working from her beach side studio, coastal elements are a constant source of inspiration for her work.
Kiln forming techniques such as glass casting, fusing and slumping, allow Claire to manipulate the glass through the processes of heat, gravity and chemical reaction. Metallic inclusions and textures add depth and tactility.
The resulting pieces have an element of unpredictability in their formation, which aligns closely to the physical forces and energy of the coastal landscape.
Cold working processes are used to exploit the optical qualities of the glass and help create an element of vitality and movement.
Claire designs bespoke two and three dimensional sculptures, panels and vessels for commission and sale in galleries. Every design is cut and assembled free hand ensuring that every item is truly unique.
