Clare Belfrage: Rhythms of Necessity

Clare Belfrage: Rhythms of Necessity
Kay Lawrence and Sera Waters
Wakefield Press

‘Rhythms of Necessity’ is the first major publication for artist Clare Belfrage. Beginning with reflections on childhood and family life this monograph traces her journey from ‘falling into art’ at a young age, to a significant career in the field of studio glass art.

Combining a series of texts by Kay Lawrence and Sera Waters with a selection of photographs of the artist as well as images of her unique glass-worked vessels and glass drawings, this book charts the development of Belfrage’s techniques and practice over 25 years and reveals her deep-felt sentiments for the rhythms and flows of life and the natural world, that inspire her work.
