Clare Butfield


Clare has been a free-form potter for many years. Having become fascinated by glass-fusing she has turned here creative attention to this medium.

Clare enjoys using the various techniques in glass-fusing to achieve her artistic objectives.  She finds the design process particularly rewarding, but as the production process begins the tactile feel of the glass and the colour combinations influence the overall design.  Clare seeks to attain a depth of dimension by using several layers of glass.  The process begins by deforming the first flat fused piece by slumping or dropping the glass to achieve the desired curves and shapes.
