About

Ceramicist Claudia Clare will give a talk focusing on Christine Keeler the survivor: survivor of poverty and exploitation and her goal of the ordinary, secure life. She will discuss why she made her work for the exhibition 'Dear Christine' – its form (the pilgrim flask) and method (broken and mended). Claudia will also discuss the image of the prostituted woman in figurative art, with a focus on archetypes: the Fallen Woman, the Woman Taken in Adultery, the Magdelene, etc. religious archetypes which often feature in ceramics.

Claudia Clare is a ceramicist and writer based in London. Author of 'Subversive Ceramics' (Bloomsbury 2015), she contributes regularly to 'Ceramic Review'. She is known for her large-scale, slip-painted, eathernware jars that depict scenes that show the impact of major events on the lives of ordinary people.

'Dear Christine' is curated by Fionn Wilson and supported  using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
