Claire Deleurme is a young visual artist. Initially trained at the Fine Arts College of Quimper, she first worked coordinating artistic workshops while she let her ideas mature. A defining moment at the Beaux-Arts was her encounter with the printmaking teacher, who sharpened her interest in prints and in paper. Another important step was a year abroad at UQAM (University of Quebec in Montreal), where she confirmed her sculptural bent.
In 2012, she decided to enroll in a 2-year training program at CERFAV (European Center for Research and Training in Glasswork). And it was through pâte de verre (molten glass) that she returned to her main material. She then spent 6 months in Finland studying at the Ikaalinen College of Crafts and Design.
New collections were unveiled in the US during a residence at the Corning Museum of Glass. These works have been exhibited in France and internationally including Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Claire Deleurme has worked, studied and taught in France, Canada, Finland and the United States.
Few months ago, she moved her studio in Montreal in Canada. She is currently working on the Chapter 5: Identity from her project “Silent Language” with a French grant from DRAC Bretagne.
