In September 2017 Claire finished a two year part time MA degree in Glass at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.  Claire hasn't exactly rushed into her glass career.  It is something she has pursued out of pure pleasure over a number of years preferring to take her time learning the craft and experimenting.  She has found it to be the best way to do it.  There has been little pressure and she has been able to pursue it for the enjoyment rather than out of necessity.  This has been hugely advantageous as she has instinctively gathered the knowledge needed through a largely self-led approach.  Claire is passionate about the work that she does in glass and has found it all consuming.  Most recently Claire has started to work in mixed media using glass, leather and bronze.
