Clare Belfrage — Ironbark, Soaking Warmth, 2023
In part her artworks have developed via a technical breakthrough involving the artistÕs innovative use of fine glass rods known as "stringers". In her process, Belfrage applies heavily stretched, thinned, and lengthened stringers to her blown glass forms. Rather than using commercially available stringers, Belfrage makes her own, painstakingly walking and stretching glass along tracks to produce very fine lengths of glass with the desired thickness, density, transparency and linear effects.
Clare Belfrage is an award-winning glass artist. She has an extensive national and international exhibition and teaching history. From 2009-2013 Belfrage was the Artistic Director of Canberra Glassworks, and in 2018, her career was celebrated as the South Australian Living Artist Festival feature artist.
