TEXTILE ART – BUG BALLS
Claire graduated in 2008 with a BA Hons in Applied Arts. Her current work is a ‘freestyle’ form of 3D embroidery which can loosely be described as stumpwork.
With an appreciation of the natural world and love of drawing Claire has been inspired to study insects and reproduce these as tiny embroideries on felt. She enjoys the humour in producing insects that are realistic and presenting them as traditional entomological collections. Her work is a celebration of insects some of which are ironically described as ‘pests’.
