Introducing Claire Jensen & Waste Media
A kiwi who spent many years growing up in North Queensland. After some overseas travel Claire settled back in New Zealand, Opunake, with her family in 2005. Her background is in art and education, with particular interest in sculpture and design.
Environmental issues and consumerism often feature as themes in Claire’s sculpture and her functional design primarily uses salvaged and collected materials in order to reuse and revalue them. ‘wastemedia’ pieces are contemporary and are influenced by Midcentury and Scandinavian design.
