Claire Knight

Claire Knight is a potter working with stoneware and firing with wood and soda in Alby, Norfolk. Her pots are fired to around 1280°c in a firing that can last up to 30 hours. The oxygen-greedy flame leaves flashes of warm orange and speckles of melted ash on the bare clay, contrasting with the glazed surfaces. During the firing she introduces soda directly into the kiln over a period of 5 hours. This leaves a lustrous surface that can build to a true ‘orange peel’ texture. Each pot is unique, showing visible evidence of its position and experience in the kiln throughout the firing. All her pots are food safe and oven, dishwasher and microwave proof.
