The Swirl - reminiscent of the Maori 'koru' symbol, representing new beginnings, growth and harmony

I am Claire Fairweather and would describe myself as an artist/designer/maker. I am a naturally creative person and need to be making something to be happy; hopefully I can spread a little of that happiness by sharing my creations with the world.

Since 2010, my medium of choice has been polymer clay. Working from my home studio in Millwater, north of Auckland, when I am not creating mosaic artwork with my own hand made polymer clay tiles (, I like to make these Swirl-StoNZ. The random and unpredictable nature of their creation makes each one unique, and is a welcome break from the precise and time consuming nature of mosaic art.
