Precious Fragments of History

Clare creates limited edition and one-off pieces using old postcards featuring handwriting, sourced with stamps, maps, photographs. Sections are extracted then combined with new metalwork creating contemporary stories.
Archiving ephemera separated from original family ties gives them new life and meaning. Pieces are often combined with old wood rulers and semi-precious stones.
