Claire de Lune
ART, CERAMICS, LOVE
Claire de Lune is a Scottish ceramic artist and painter living and working in Margate.
Claire started her multi-media art practice in Edinburgh before relocating to Glasgow, London and Berlin. Her playfulness with materials was evident from the start, and she has now created her own immersive world of characters and symbols, little talismanic islands of love and hope for the viewer.
Her ceramics practice is a labour of love, her family the Adams in Staffordshire having made ceramics and pottery since the 1600s. Her work is both a reflection and continuation of this historical family practice.
For the last two years Claire was working and exhibiting in Berlin, experimenting with glazing techniques and refining her ceramic characters, culminating in some well received solo shows, and group exhibitions.
Through dreams, storytelling, and cross cultural archetypes, her characters reflect a playful romantic world of interaction, relationship, and human contact.
Claire has exhibited throughout the UK and Europe, including the Gallery of Modern Art (Glasgow), Mexico Project Space (Leeds), HB55 (Berlin), Fishfactory Arts (Falmouth), and SWG3 (Glasgow).
