Claire Downes works in the fashion industry and spends her free time in a shared ceramic studio in Hoxton, London. She had a real longing to be more creative with her hands and found the perfect solution in ceramics. Every item is made by hand and thrown on a wheel, which makes every one unique. Claire creates functional pieces with a contemporary feel. She is inspired by dark interiors and plays with texture and contrast through her use of different clays and glazes.
