The quaint, colourful glass animals of artist Claire Kelly are much more than decorative items. Crafted using traditional glassblowing methods, Kelly finds inspiration in the unconventional forms and patterns of artists like Carlo Scarpa, Napoleone Martinuzzi or Dick Marquis. Playing with patterns and colors, her attractive animals, standing on pedestals, become symbols of the perilous balance between man and nature. Her works serve as tiny reminders of the fragility of our environment, urging us to examine our connections and relationships towards nature. See more of Kelly’s work on her website and Instagram.
