Claire Baker crafts unusual ceramic pieces that combine elements of the distressed beauty and melancholic properties of Miss Haversham’s wedding table in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations with the fantastical eccentricity of Alice in Wonderland.

Her home in Country Durham is filled with objects she has found from scouring junk shops and fleamarkets, which serve to both stimulate and adorn her work.

A ‘fabulous midlife crisis’ motivated Claire, a former hairdresser, to enrol for a degree in ceramics at Bath University, graduating in 2009. She has since torn up the rule book to create highly individual decorative items.
