About The Artist
Claire Mayne is a life-long glass obsessive. Having grown up watching the glass blowers that once worked on the Barbican in Plymouth, and marvelling over their creations Claire has always had a fascination with glass. Growing up by the sea has certainly inspired and influenced Claire’s art work and style incorporating natural textures, bold nautical colours and a sense of fun and freedom.
As part of a very artistic and creative family Claire has always turned her hands to craft. A keen life-long musician and artist she has explored many different artistic media including playing and writing all original music with her Dad, Derek Wood.
Claire’s aspiration of working with glass was realised in 2012 when she began studying stained glass, then going on to develop her love of glass fusing. Claire has completed several different courses including those provided by The Glass Hub in Wiltshire, under the excellent tuition of Helga Watkins-Baker.
