artist info

Claire Prenton is a British ceramic artist who lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Claire studied Design Crafts at the Cumbria College of Art and Design specializing in textile design and embroidery. She then gained a Certificate in Education from the University of Central Lancashire and taught art at Nelson and Colne College. In 2004 she moved to Seattle with her husband Justin and became an assistant at Kirkland Arts Center, supporting Pat Colyar in the pottery studio and studying with Carol Gouthro. Claire moved to Cincinnati in 2011 where she has her own ceramic studio.

"Inspired the beauty of nature, my work reflects the minute detail, textures and patterns found in shells, coral, driftwood, flowers and plants. Rather than making an exact copy, I capture the essence of the subject, believing that it is the life and narrative in each piece that’s important. Whether its a tiny dew drop on a leaf or a shell beginning to open and reveal the pearl held within, I try to evoke the sense of a moment frozen in time. I often find it’s the imperfections and blemishes which are the most appealing as they give the piece a life energy.

My pieces also have a vintage quality which comes from my love of ornament and decoration found in historical architecture and costume. I create richly embellished areas using incising and stamping and then add slip and sprigs to achieve an almost jewel-like embroidered quality to the piece. Gold is added in the final firing to give a brilliance and feeling of opulence to the finished work." - Claire Prenton
