Clair Raabe is a self taught glass carver and flame worker. Clair says of her work, "My images are friends from my world of imagination. I am inspired by the ancient stories filled with larger-than-life heroes, mysteries and the challenge of following your dreams. I identify with the character that takes the other road and finds personal fulfillment. Glass is my medium, it is also my passion. I have followed the road of the creative soul and have found my heart's song. It is reflected in every piece."
