Balancing fragility and a fluidity of movement, Clare's pieces display a juxtaposition of clean lines and tension in curved forms; with rawness and brokenness. At their heart, the battle between control and spontaneity.
Through her work she explores the theme of what's hidden within: the veneers that people show to the world and the realities that lie beneath.
She crafts her one-off sculptures and vessels in a variety of stoneware and porcelain clays, using a combination of techniques: throwing forms to cut, join and distort; and slab-building using press-moulds.
Her first career was in advertising, where she worked for 15 years as a Strategic Planner in a number of London advertising agencies.
Clare sells her work from her studio in North West London, where she also lives with her husband and two daughters.
