Clare Gaylard Glass 

Lampwork Glass, Jewellery and Wearable Art, created by me: Clare Gaylard in my Suffolk studio.

The echo knows all languages.                                                             Finnish proverb


Sometimes the abstract, textural or sculptural qualities of the molten glass drives my making. At others I'm caught up in a narrative, motif or colourway, frequently exploring a small object as a microcosm or talisman 


I developed my totems as vertical glass sculptures (or stories) that also function as interactively balanced stacks of wearable, sculpted glass elements. Each totem stands alone as a sculpture and operates as a curated jewellery box.
