After graduating from Kent Institute of Art and Design with a degree in Ceramics, Claire set up her studio in Tunbridge Wells.
Inspired by nature, she has created many collections of sculpture. Claire is intrigued by process, believing that sometimes the mistakes and errors we make along the way are as important, if not more important than the end result. They are part of a process and without the journey there would be no destination.
Her recent ceramic work is a collection of 'miniature disasters," ceramic vessels thrown out of porcelain or black stoneware clay until control is lost and "imperfections" created. Claire aims to highlight the importance of process and mistakes, creating ceramic sculptures with an element of freedom, fragility and intensity, capturing moments lost. A celebration of flaws and errors resulting in what she considers to be truly beautiful sculpture.
