Animal, Historic and Mythical Figures’ Traits Merged in Ceramic Art

London-based artist Claire Partington creates figurative ceramic art vessels steeped in power dynamics and status. Her works often feature removable head stoppers of humans and animals, which bring a range and versatility to each glazed character. Her art inspiration for the elegant figures comes mostly from European applied art and design styles from the 17th-century onward, yet the pieces blend elements from various centuries and genres.

Claire Partington confesses that her inspiration for her ceramic art comes from collecting visual elements from her everyday experiences such as visits to museums or walks on the street she walks on every single day, or even childhood memories. The contemporary art artist started out making her works as illustrations to the folk and fairy stories that had stayed in her memories since childhood, she’s very fond of those specific aspects. Her ceramic art is very vivid and contains stories of the fantastical human and animals transformations.
