Claudia helps Etonians flower.
Sunderland University glass graduate Claudia Phipps has left her mark on Eton College.
Artist Claudia has created a window entitled Anonymity in her role as artist-in-residence at the college.
Claudia, 26, drew inspiration for her piece from the community and environment as well as the historical traditions of Eton itself. The work will be used to record achievements and students' names and acknowledge individuals in no particular order to ensure no one is forgotten in the future.
"Names are usually alphabetical, listed by date, year, group or division," said Claudia, who lives in Sunderland.
As time goes by, names become less meaningful, unless people have gone on to distinguish themselves beyond school.
"In this piece of work, the names are jumbled up and overlaid. I hope that the work will be thought-provoking for generations of boys and visitors to Eton in years to come."
After Claudia graduated in 2001, she was commissioned to create a glass design for the exclusive Seaham Hall Hotel in County Durham.
She has since completed several other pieces of work for companies and hospitals and has shown her work at exhibitions in the Czech Republic, London, Lithuania, Oxford, Sunderland and Gateshead.
