Claire creates contemporary sculpture and functional design with materials diverted from landfill. She seeks to skillfully craft waste into refined sculpture and design pieces in order to reuse and revalue resources such as wood, metal and plastic. Often Claire’s themes relate to nature, the environment and consumer society. She has recently exhibited in the ’Home Work Taranaki Art 2020’ exhibition at Puke Ariki and at The Collaboration, New Plymouth. Her work is also available online and at retailers around New Zealand. Claire works from her home-based studio in Opunake, The Brown Bach Studio, where she welcomes visitors throughout the year by appointment and on Sundays 12-4. Her studio is also part of the artist collective in Opunake region known as the Opunake Open Studios & Galleries.
