Spindles

Individually hand built pieces for courtyard gardens, outdoor locations and contemporary living spaces. Claire uses stoneware bodies and porcelain for smaller work, adapting coils, manipulating soft slabs, pinching and carving the surface to achieve her desired forms. She paints the pieces with engobe, oxides and body stains and fires to 1260 to achieve a weatherproof structure.

She also has the opportunity at her London studio to experiment with smoke firing techniques to achieve an alternative surface, which involves pit and saggar firings using sawdust, copper wire, seaweed and other combustible materials. She will often create a series of small sculptural forms that serve as working maquettes. Her large final pieces interplay three-dimensional form with texture and glaze.
