Clare is interested in the concept of turning drawings into three dimensions using an industrial process of extruding a thermoplastic that she ‘draws’ freehand with. Watching Clare at work leaves you speechless, her ability to create stunning works of art in a continuous flow is simply amazing.

Tecbond – More than just a glue stick !


Clare also uses hot melt and the same technique to create a unique and often “one off” jewellery collection. As the jewellery is a thermoplastic, it warms with your body’s heat and gradually moulds to your contours, this range of jewellery has been described as “resembling a series of drawings for the body. The saturated colour and slippery surfaces allude to precious lacquer work whilst fluid forms blur the line between liquid and solid.” ‘Secret Second Life’ – National Centre for Craft and Design
