“Silver fragments mirror pathways in the Castlewellan Peace Maze which I explored as a child following its opening at the turn of the millenium. The organic cast fragments speak to the timelesseness of the Castlewellan forest while the pathways evoke uncertainty, getting lost and a journey ahead.

I’m Claire, a jeweller, silversmith and artist based by Annalong; at the foot of the Mourne Mountains. Rural life and the landscapes I grew up around have a strong influence on my practice, something I show through the use of texture, form and material in my metalwork. Graduating from Ulster University’s Ceramics, Jewellery and Silversmithing degree course in Summer 2018; I’ve been lucky to study abroad in Finland as well as exhibit my work as part of UU’s End of Year show and the prestigious New Designer’s exhibition in London.”
