Claire Manners Wood/ 'Ruby Red'

Claire’s textile sculptures often represent her experiences of joy, grief, memories and dreams. Each of her sculptures is uniquely informed by both the donor and their fabric – making her constructions relational, generational and emotionally significant. She enjoys the emotional connections when working with donated fabric. Claire’s sculptures use aluminium rods as a base. These abstract structures are dressed in fabrics using a wide range of hand and machine sewing techniques, and she often employs unusual elements to add context, emotion and representation. A fine art course completed in 2021 moved Claire from painting into textiles – and she discovered a passion for creating abstract 3D textile artworks. In 2023 Claire has participated in 11 exhibitions – both online and in person – in the UK and USA.
