Much of Claire’s work explores themes relating to nature and the environment. She enjoys working with found objects and collected materials such as wood, metal and plastic as she is passionate about reusing resources and creating art with a sustainable ethos.
The materials she collects govern the project she makes and the techniques with which she makes them. Most recently Claire is exploring carving native NZ bird feathers from salvaged native timbers. These pieces represent what is precious to our national identity, our flora and fauna.
