A small selection of recent works.
All pieces are individually handcrafted from layered coils of clay, and whilst there can be a similarity, no moulds are used in the process, making each finished bird truly unique.
Newly completed birds will be added regularly, so please check back from time to time.
Please take a look at the online shop for pieces currently available.
Claire is also happy to take commissions.
Please get in touch with any requests.
Claire has been producing unique handcrafted pottery in the North Yorkshire village of Roecliffe for several years now.
With a particular specialism in abstract bird sculpture, she creates birds of all shapes and sizes and in a variety of finishes.
All of Claire’s sculptures are uniquely crafted and fired by hand in her home kiln.
Having exhibited her bespoke pieces at several leading galleries, and with wide-ranging acclaim, she now sells directly to customers in all parts of the UK .
Whilst the internet is great for spreading the word, it's often much better to see the physical piece in person to get a feel for size and shape, so visitors are always welcomed for a browse. Please call in advance if planning a visit.

Thank you for my little white bird. She is lovely....chirping on the hearth. I am delighted with the other two as well. Quite often if I choose something from a display in a shop it looks quite insignificant when it is on its own at home. Your pieces are the opposite...even more stunning Thank you. I wish all shopping experiences were as lovely as mine was yesterday.
