Maker – Claire Stonier
I am a maker of crochet art using freeform crochet techniques and creating fibre art wearable jewellery, with signature necklace and collar pieces and smaller works including brooches and cuff links using fine textiles with silk, merino, steel fibres and yarns. Inspired by natural forms, botanics, nature, wild flowers and anything colourful and architectural.
An important part of my work involves found objects which lead the design. Coming from the post industrial potteries I love ceramics, glass and objects that connect with heritage and social history connected to the piece.
Having studied visual arts as part of a creative arts degree at Lancaster University and majoring in Music, I am re-establishing my creative practice in textiles, heritage craft and design.
