Claire Crawford is a sculptural mixed media artist with an extensive background of working in glass and most recently combining kiln-cast glass with leather and bronze. She first started with kiln-cast glass in 2009 principally tutored by Fiaz Elson along with a largely self-led and exploratory approach. The use of natural form as the inspiration for her work has stayed with her to date. Claire went on to take a Master’s degree in Glass at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham and finished in September 2017 having achieved a distinction. During the degree course her style progressed to making mixed media sculptures of scale for large interior spaces which is a path she continues to follow and explore.
