Sand to Glass, to Sand: Claire Evans of Standing on a Beach

Working from her seaside studio in Fife, Claire Evans of Standing on a Beach specialises in fused glass design inspired by coastal elements. Kiln-forming techniques enable her to manipulate the glass through heat, gravity and chemical reaction. The resulting pieces have an element of unpredictability in their formation, which aligns closely to the physical forces and energy of the coast, while cold working processes exploit the optical qualities of the glass for vitality and movement.
