Claire is an artist and bespoke picture framer, specializing in frame restoration and gilding, based in Gloucestershire. She uses her extensive knowledge of gilding to create her Verre Églomisé pieces, combining her life-long love of drawing and art education.
Pronounced Verr Egg-loam-eezay, it is a term used to describe the application of gold leaf on glass into which designs are etched.
Claires inspiration comes predominantly from the natural world and the rich patterns and symbols that run through worldwide folklore which she develops into designs for her gold leaf pendants.
Claire exhibits her work worldwide and throughout the year and has gained several awards in the UK and USA.
