LITURGICAL GLASS +++ ARTS
Claire M. Wing is a professional liturgical artist and designer working nationally in leaded glass and sand-carved glass relief sculpture, as well as the design of devotional spaces, liturgical items, and ritual furnishings. Her work is dedicated to quality on every level, from initial client contact through final installation. She uses the finest quality glass and materials, substantial and durable fabrication techniques, with problem-free installations.
In the Roman Catholic liturgy there is a captivating prayer which concludes, &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;…their unending hymn of praise. &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot; This is, for me, the fundamental premise for creating works of sacred art, and the reason I do this work. Through a collaborative design process, marked by great attention to detail and attentive listening, Ms. Wing works closely with her clients to achieve a work of meaning and beauty that reflects the Gospel message and mission, and engages the spirituality of the faith community for generations to come.
Ms. Wing received her B/FA in Fine Arts from St. Mary’s College, doing course work through the University of Notre Dame in the U.S. and France. Her graduate work was at L’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Art in Paris, France. She also attended the Institute for Liturgical Consultants at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. She has been a presenter at the Form/Reform Conference on Environment and Art for Catholic Worship and the University of Dallas Ministry Conference
