Pottery and Ceramics

Claire Folkes

Claire Folkes is a small batch potter based at her garden studio in Cambridgeshire, having grown up in Nottinghamshire. She throws all of her work on the potters’ wheel, in a simple and contemporary style, using neutral slips and glazes that would complement any home.

Claire particularly enjoys the transformation from a lump of clay to something beautiful and enduring, and all of her pieces include unglazed surfaces to highlight this. This results in contrasting textures, and the pieces are highly tactile. Made to be used, handed and loved.
