Clare Poppi is an artist living and working in Brisbane, Australia. After achieving first class honours in her Fine Art degree she received an ArtStart grant from the Australia Council for the Arts and has continued to make art, establishing a studio space with three other jewellers from which to create her work. Her primary practice is in jewellery & metal-smithing, focusing on sustainable design and wearable art.
Her pieces ranges from jewellery growing live grass to nature inspired designs using recycled metals and bio-degradable components. Clare arrives at her designs by experimenting with placement and juxtaposition, and using her sense of materiality to determine a resolved piece. However, this spontaneous approach is always tempered with a strict adherence to sustainable and ethical work practices, including environmentally conscious studio techniques and Cradle-to Cradle design practices.
