New Work and Forthcoming Exhibitions
New Work shows work in progress for exhibition in 2016. The first pots in the collection, Nightwalker and Travelling West can be seen here. You can follow updates for this and all other works in progress at The C Word (supplement).
I will be talking about the Clause 28 Tea Set at The Pankhurst Centre, June 11th 2015 at the exhibition launch.
Molly’s Odyssey, 2013, is a trio of pots that feature the writer Rebecca Chance as James Joyce’s Molly Bloom. Nothing Like a Kiss is the pot shown on the right with Rebecca Chance as Molly. I’ve chosen to highligh this page for June, to coincide with Blooms-Day, which falls on June 16th.
I am immensely grateful to The Society of Authors for their support for my forthcoming book, Subversive Ceramics, Bloomsbury 2015, now in production and can be pre-ordered from the Bloomsbury website or at 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 corrective, passionate, lucid, funny, beautifully illustrated and frequently surprising.” Edmund de Waal
