Claire Walker's Profile
I love old things. Vintage books, haberdashery, packaging, all these things inspire me. In the old days everything was put together with so much more care. The simplest object, like a tin of dressmaker's pins, was designed and made to be not just a useful thing, but also a beautiful thing.
For as long as I can remember I've been collecting old things, but it was not until 2007 that I began to take these things apart and put them back together in a new way, giving them another life, another chance to be cherished.
I work in a little corner of our house, in the night-time while my children sleep, to make pretty, delicate and whimsical objects from the vintage bits and pieces that I collect and treasure.
Each piece that I use in my work has been hand-picked…
