What the press said:

“This is history painting form a democratic viewpoint, in a domestic medium, which celebrates the hand-made material object as well as art’s subversion.”

Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times, 2012.


I am now a professional member of the Craft Potters Association
and represented by Zuleika Gallery London and Oxford,
and Gallery 286, London.

I have contributed an essay, Overlapping Fields: urban and rural influences in Emilie Taylor's 'Edgelands' to the catalogue for Taylor's forthcoming show, Edgelands, which opens at Gallery Oldham, in June 2017.

Subversive Ceramics, (Bloomsbury, 2016) has been selected as one of the 'Outstanding Academic Titles' for 2016 by 'Choice' publication of the American Library Associaiton. It is now on sale on line and in all good book shops: Bloomsbury website | Amazon.

This book has been needed for a very long time. It examines the intriguing histories of how clay has been used as a medium for dissent, as a commentary on political life and to critique ideas of domesticity. It argues that ceramics’ access to the everyday, and its use of a material that is little-regarded, allows it to rewrite narratives around power. Claudia Clare’s book is a corrective: passionate, lucid, funny, beautifully illustrated and frequently surprising.
Edmund de Waal

I am immensely grateful to The Society of Authors for their support for the writing of this book.
