About Claire Mooney
Based in Northern Ireland, my work aims to celebrate local heritage and simple living. A graduate from Silversmithing & Jewellery at Ulster University in 2018 I am currently studying an MA in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies which informs my contemporary practice.
My background is mainly in metalwork and I'm working towards larger spun vessels and sculptural pieces with repoussé detail. I'm very interested in the history and processes of textile production within Ireland, mainly linen and wool and which I aim to incorporate into future mixed media pieces.
