Clear Glass Vessels ‘Cane Studies’ by Clare L Wilson
The jewels in the crown of Clare L Wilson’s range of ‘Cane Studies’ are pieces Number 60 to 64.
These imposing, tear-drop shaped clear glass vessels are each a rare work of art. Each of the five pieces are hand blown in clear glass with accents of grey and white in both the cane and murine patterning.
The care and skill taken to produce these wondrous objects is staggering. These are truly individual, distinctive objects which will never be reproduced. It is seldom one has the chance to own exclusive, stunning pieces such as these. A chance not to be missed.
Please Note: Each image is a representation of the pieces that Clare produces. Because of the techniques involved no two pieces are ever the same, unless specifically noted as a stock item.
Clear Glass Vessels Artist
Clare L Wilson graduated with a BA (Hons) in 2007 from the Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland.
From there, she traversed the globe to the farthest side, to JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design in Adelaide, Australia, where she was one of the fortunate few to be selected for their two year associate training program.
In Australia, Clare had the opportunity to fine tune her blown glass skills within the specialist program that focused on design, prototyping and production.
After her two year stint on the program, Clare became a studio tenant and produced blown glass tableware which sold well, right across the continent. She also exhibited with the Ranamok Glass Prize touring exhibition.
Clare travels extensively as part of her practice and as a fully-fledged and respected member of the international glass community. This has been a great way to share ideas and skills as well as to get constructive feedback from her peers.
In 2012 Clare returned to the UK and bases herself in Hampshire, where she continues to evolve her glass craft. Clare focuses on a muted palette with cane and murine techniques that heightens the effect of her signature frenetic patterning.
Her time is split between producing commissioned pieces like these clear glass vessels for individuals and corporate clients and creating one off art glass objects for exhibition.
