Clare Henshaw was exhibiting in the first week of Origin. It turned out that she could speak swedish after an eight year old forray into the very north of my country. Clare's time in Sweden influenced her current work:
"The extraordinary light phenomenon in the north of Sweden, pristine nature and long Arctic winters has shaped my visual sense."This small woman is the designer and maker of big glass, both in its presence and in size. See more pictures of the process here.
At Origin Clare showed her work on a massive aluminium structure, a combination I thought worked so well. It showed off the shape and tactility of the pieces.
In the UK, Clare's glass is for sale via anvari art.
