HANDMADE STONEWARE CERAMICS
Inspired by Nature
"I love living with my family in rural Suffolk. Each day, when out walking with our dog Mabel, I see, hear and touch the beauty nature beholds. The contours, colours and textures of the surrounding landscapes, flora and fauna inspire the design and making of my ceramic pieces.
I find fired, raw clay beautiful to look at and hold. Therefore I choose to work with stoneware clay and high fire temperatures to allow this base medium to shine through, whilst also producing a hard-wearing, water resistant, functional object for home or garden."

Here are a small selection of images to give you a sense of the Floreat Pottery house style - please click through each image for more information. I am creating new pieces all the time though, so please follow these developments on Instagram or Facebook.
I post details of the markets and exhibitions I am attending on my social media (Instagram/Facebook) and a selection of pieces are available for sale through my Etsy shop.
I work on bespoke commissions for private individuals and businesses. Creating beautifully crafted pieces to mark a special occasion or reinforce a brand's unique identity. I am happy to discuss a brief over the phone, via email or welcome visitors to my home studio.
A happy customer:
"I've known Clare for some years now, so when I found out she was starting her own pottery business I knew it was going to be great... and I believe she has surpassed herself!
Floreat Pottery pieces are functional, yet thoughtful and ever so beautiful, you can feel a lot of care and passion has gone into making them. I have a baking and small parties catering business and had been looking for platters and bowls to serve my food. Nothing found I liked, so when Clare said she could make besoke pieces for me, I was really happy. The pieces are all I asked for; functional with a lovely crafted feel, durable and branded. I would definitely recommend Clare for any pottery pieces, especially bespoke ones!"
