Claudia is b-side bursary artist from Weymouth College.
For b-side 2016
For b-side festival 2016, Claudia will be collecting flotsam and jetsam washed up on Chesil Cove in Portland and casting her collections, both natural and man-made, in agar jelly and palm oil. Agar links to the debris as it is produced from algae. The use of palm oil is pertinent as deposits have been found on Portland beaches, dumped by container ships. The choice of material also gives the work a sense of impermanence as the casts will degrade throughout the festival. Claudia wanted to create objects which were jewel like and alluring but also slightly repulsive.
