Claire works mainly with silk dupion, organzas and chiffons in many colours. The sheer fabrics being layered to create areas of watery and intense colours similar to the effect of painting with inks.
Machine embroidery applique methods are then used to apply rich dupion silks to enhance this effect. Rayon and metallic threads are heavily stitched into areas to create richly coloured and textured panels which when backed and stuffed allow the pieces to take on a life and character all of their own.
The main influences behind her rather 'whimsical' one off pieces come from a variety of different sources including Islamic and Indian jewellery and artefacts, medieval ritual vessels, architecture and fairytale imagery. All of which interest her in terms of shape, quality and use of colour and the precious, magical qualities which they convey.
