Clare Hooper

Artist Statement

I have always been drawn to the creation of making things in small scale. To be able to hold something that displays intricate detailing has always fascinated me.

I have realised over the years that this fascination for all things small doesn't have to be only for items created for their novelty value but that they can also be carriers of meaning and storytelling. And this has been for me one of the defining reasons of why I create my artwork in the medium of jewellery and objects.
