Claudia Clare trained as a painter at Camberwell School of Art in the 1980s, followed by an apprenticeship with Winchcombe pottery in 1990. She became a regular contributor to Ceramic Review in 1997 and completed a Phd at University of Westminster in 2007. She has exhibited in numerous galleries and museums nationally and was shortlisted for the British Ceramics Biennial Major Award in 2013. In 2019 a major project with women@thewell prompted a growing interest in social and performance collaborations with feminist organisations including Filia International Feminist Conference. She is the author of ‘Subversive Ceramics,’ (Bloomsbury 2016) and co-wrote ‘The Pot Book’ (Phaidon, 2011) with Edmund de Waal.
