Claire Olivier - Ceramics - Wall Rings
Claire has been creating ceramic work for over 20 years.
In 2017 her family moved from Salt Spring Island to Qualicum Beach. Living in beautiful Coastal British Columbia, close to the Salish Sea and Douglas fir forests nurtures and influences her creativity.
Her pit fired work strives to embrace that deep ancestral primal reaction to the arts made with fire, with the beauty of the cosmos, organic colour, curling smoke and scorching shadows.
For the table, her work marries form, function and playful abstract expressionism. She decorates pieces with terra sigillata (similar to roman pottery) and slip. The work is finished with a dishwasher safe glaze.
