Hideaway is a ceramic sculpture by Claire Loder which is inspired by Claire’s fascination with the covered face and the many interpretations and ambiguous readings that can derive from this. In this piece, Claire explores society’s anxiety about covered faces, the idea of hiding, being hidden or overlooked as well as the power in being on the inside.
Material: A mix of clays.
Dimensions: Height: 28cm: Width: 23cm, Depth: 10cm
Care Instructions: Lightly dust.
Hideaway is crafted from white clay, the bark like surface is built up in layers then textured with a wooden tool. The surface is then layered with porcelain slip and glaze.
Claire Loder is an artist, writer and educator based in Bath. Having originally trained in Illustration and Graphic Design at Bath Spa University, she then completed an MA in Ceramics from University of Wales Cardiff Institute in 2006 and received the Crafts Council’s Next Move Award. Her book ‘The New Ceramics - Sculpting and Handbuilding’ was published by Bloomsbury in 2013. Claire’s sculptures are a combination of intuitive construction, tactility and off-kilter form. The stony faces she crafts are lighter than they appear, the hollow interiors a repository for thoughts, feelings and emotions of both subject and viewer.
