About our speaker
Inspired by experiences of detail in nature, Clare Belfrage’s work has been distinguished by the use of fine glass threads to draw complex linear patterns on the surface of blown glass forms. She has maintained a vibrant practice for over twenty years. She has been an active participant in artists’ communities including the glass based studio blue pony, SA, of which she is a founding member and, the JamFactory Glass Studio community in Adelaide. She is currently living and working amongst the artist community of Canberra Glassworks where she plays the pivotal role of Creative Director.
She has had a long involvement in education and has lectured in the glass programs at Curtin University, WA, University of South Australia, SA, and Ohio State University, USA. She has also taught various workshops throughout Australia and at Pilchuck International Glass School, USA.
In addition to Australia, Clare regularly exhibits in North America, Europe, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Her work has been recognised for its innovation and originality and in 2005 and 2011 she was awarded the Tom Malone Glass Prize by the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
