Clare Maria Wood

Clare’s abstract landscapes are her expression of ‘place’, which range from journeys around the craggy Cornish coast, rugged North Yorkshire Moors – where she was brought up – and the open-skied Cambridgeshire Fens. Her recent ‘Woodland’ series have been inspired by local beech woods and their shifting appearance throughout the seasons. Her finished pieces evoke the […]

I’ve lived in London all my life and find city energy endlessly exciting.

Paul Wearing

     Textures that manifest naturally on surfaces within diverse urban and rural landscapes, are fundamental to my practice. I express my relationship to these through the glazed surface and ceramic sculptural vessel form. It is the correlation between the slower emerging life cycles of nature and the making process leading to alchemical developments within the kiln […]
