Live-Streamed Studio Demonstration: Clare Belfrage (July 15, 2015)

Watch as Clare Belfrage demonstrated for her class, Line Drawings and More, the crazy wonders of cane drawing, which involves “drawing” with fine glass lines onto glass forms in the hot shop. Inspired by experiences of detail in nature, 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 more than 25 years. She has been an active part of artists’ communities particularly in Adelaide and Canberra, including the glass-based studio Blue Pony, of which she is a founding member, the JamFactory Glass Studio in Adelaide, and Canberra Glassworks where she played the pivotal role of creative director from 2009 to 2013.
