Clare started crocheting food back in 1999 when she had a one person show at George’s Gallery (an annex of XLarge) in Los Angeles. Years later, she presented a crocheted Mardi Gras feast at Heath Ceramics showroom in Los Angeles. The show was quite popular and later travelled to a group show in Culver City called Palette curated by Roger Gastman, and then to New Orleans as part of the Prospect 3 Triennial. A spin-off show, The Crocheted Oyster Bar, followed by Paper Magazine’s Super Duper Mart where you could purchase a crocheted oyster, lemon, and hot sauce. David Byrne and Agnes Gund were oyster customers!
