Wunderkammer artist reveal: Claire Waters

“Making is my voice – it sparks the curiosity to go beyond the familiar and look past the obvious. I seek to share the collective benefit of observing and considering the life around us and our place in time. The use of non-verbal media extends our ability to communicate across culture, time and space.”

A large part of working in clay is the unpredictability of the process. she finds pleasure in defying the traditional methodology and is often surprised by the results. Her career in Graphic Design has led to experimentation with image and print on clay, preferring the natural clay colours of white, black and terracotta.

“My subject matter lends itself to the antiquity of the clay medium, and ancient and tribal ornament influence the creation of my sculpture. The state of our society, the natural world, and the discord between them inspires the narrative in my art.”
