Claire Benn

Textile Artist

My work always starts with a piece of cloth and I run with two 'inspirations': translating remote landscapes using earth pigments (what might be called representational abstraction), and the meditation of hand stitch on linen and antique hemp. The works are connected by quietness, reduction and simplicity, and all have a tactile quality.

Turning Turtle

Wood Craftsman

About 30 years ago I saw 'functionless' turning for the first time. Ten years later I started turning and have been doing so ever since. Recently I've begun making contemporary Windsor chairs incorporating turning, steam bending, carving and whittling; all disciplines in their own right which result in an incredibly comfortable chair. Whether turning or making chairs my aim is to always work with the natural beauty of the wood.
