The inspiration for the Clare Gage ceramic range comes from her life-long love of textiles. Whilst studying Clare found a new love for weaving and it formed a partnership with a childhood passion for ceramics. Whilst at university Clare was awarded the 2007 Design Directions: Ceramic Futures Award for her textiles inspired ceramics.
Her designs start life as fabric pieces hand woven by Clare and transformed into bespoke moulds which are used to create inspiring porcelain versions of the textile pieces.
The cup collection was the beginning of the Clare Gage story and stems from a real affection for the quintessentially English tradition of afternoon tea. Time taken to share a cup of tea is an important part of Clare’s family life and her cups encourage you to take a moment of your day to relax and savour the experience of a good cup of tea.
The full Clare Gage collection now includes cups, tableware, vases, jewellery and decorations and Heart Gallery is proud to showcase Clare’s work once again in Hebden Bridge.
