Claire Jensen



Claire lives and works in the small coastal Taranaki town, Opunake, where she has set up her home studio ‘The Brown Bach Studio’ in which she makes sculpture and functional design from recycled materials. Much of Claire’s work explores themes relating to nature and the environment. She enjoys working with found objects and collected materials such as wood, metal and plastic as she is passionate about reusing resources and creating art with a sustainable ethos. Recently Claire has developed a collection of pieces representing native New Zealand flora and fauna as objects of devotion.
