Claire's smoke-fired pots are first fired in an electric kiln, sometimes she partly glazes them and may add a metallic lustre. Then one at a time they are surrounded with oak sawdust which slowly burns around them in an incinerator. The sawdust creates beautiful markings and subtle shades and colours. They do not hold water as they are non porous. The pots are decorative and not intended for functional use.
She also designs and makes jewellery. It can be smoke-fired or glazed with added lustres. Lustres contain metallic compounds and the gold and platinum lustres contain 10% real gold and platinum. Sometimes she adds beautiful abalone shells or Swarovski crystals. Claire completed a BA Honours degree in Multidisciplinary Design at Staffordshire University. She was awarded a Setting Up Grant by the Crafts Coucil in 1999 and has continued to work since in exhibitions in the UK and abroad. She is a professional member of the Craft Potters Association and lives and works in Warwick.
