Claudia has worked on a wide range of architectural glass commissions using a variety of techniques including engraving and kiln-forming as well as traditional painting and leading. Through her degree, she investigated layering colour and pattern, exploiting the translucency of glass. She set up her studio after graduating and started to explore glass as a medium for investigating surface decoration, imagery and texture.
For the last ten years, Claudia has been Artist in Residence at Wycombe Abbey School, dividing her time between teaching and her own practice. She works mainly to commission, on a wide range of projects led by the client’s needs. Claudia has built up a portfolio of work both in the public and private sectors. Examples of her glasswork can be found in Stoke Mandeville Spinal Injuries Unit, St. Leonards Church, Buckinghamshire, St. Mary’s Church, Laverton, Rothbury community Hospital and The Rosie Hospital at Addenbrookes amongst others.
Claudia’s work examines dialogue - between artist and viewer, space and material. It looks at the spaces between the realities which make up our lives, structures in the physical world, natural phenomena. Her work spans both abstract and figurative styles, the situation determining the design in each case. Each commission is approached as a new challenge, and although drawn from previous experience, every project is unique.
