Claire Fernig

From traditional leaded windows to delicate fused glass jewellery. Claire started working with stained glass over 20 years ago. Claire works with lead, copper foil and fused glass techniques, taking a lot of inspiration from nature, sailing and the sea around where she works and lives. This is how the name Spinnaker Glass was created. Claire works out of a small studio based in East Anglia. One of her current interests is in using up-cycled and recycled materials in her artwork.

Claire is currently working on creating pieces for an upcoming specialist glass exhibition in Bristol. The New Beginnings Exhibition will be held at the Priory Gallery, Bristol, BS1 3BZ and will be running from the 25 February until the 2nd March 2023.

Her brand new jewellery range Bay Number 7 has been inspired by and evokes strong memories of a once in a lifetime holiday, sailing around the Greek Island of Ithaca.

“The colours of the sea in the bays where we moored, the ropes from long lining to the shore and the bubbles from the movement of the waves, had a huge impact on the design. ”

Bay number 7 jewellery will also available from 25th February from my website, subject to availability.
