Claire Bent - Cielo Pottery
Trio of Unicorn Mugs
Swirling joy bowl
I am passionate about creating sustainable and gorgeous pieces of affordable functional ceramic art which bring joy every time they are used, and become a regular part of people's day to day rhythms.
I am inspired by the colours, textures, and forms, which I see when I am pursuing my other great passion - travelling. Be they literal inspiration through a riot of colours at a festival, or a 'sense' of something through a shared experience or story.
I create my art using both earthenware and stoneware clay, depending on the form and intended function. As much of my clay as possible is recycled within the studio and I aim to be as sustainable in my making practices as the final product is for the new owner! I use a wide range of glazes and glaze technique to bring ceramics to life.
