White Vessels ‘Frayed Vessels’ by Clare L Wilson
White Vessels are a part of Clare L Wilson’s bespoke ‘Frayed Vessels’ range, this piece is both unique in colouring and form. The unusual sphere shaping allows these particular white vessels to show off Clare’s signature cane patterning to maximum effect.
Each piece is expertly hand blown in either sandblasted or white glass. The finishing touch is the choice of colour used for the intricate decoration. As an individual piece, it is an object of beauty however, if 10 or more are required, the option exists to create a totally distinctive colour to accent the cane patterning and produce an unrepeatable range.
Custom colour orders are available on orders of ten or more.
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.
White 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 white vessels for individuals and corporate clients and creating one off art glass objects for exhibition.
