Clare Gage's elegant collection of tableware is an intimate fusion of hand-crafted textiles and delicate porcelain. Every piece is carefully formed from hand woven fabrics, transformed into individual moulds and created in porcelain. Each item is a modern day treasure: eclectic, individual and yet completely functional.

This is how Clare describes the making of her beautiful porcelain cups: ‘I enjoy making functional pieces and feel that cups have a special quality as the enjoyment of a drink from a good cup is a simple pleasure that I really appreciate. ‘The cups work together as a collection but show variety and individuality. By experimenting with lots of different design ideas I was able to find the most effective ones and also create an exciting collection of individual cups. I transferred the textiles texture of both weave and knit onto the range of cups and explored construction techniques with consideration of how I would make the cups if I were working in textiles. The seams where the pieces of clay join became a feature and brought in embroidery techniques through the stitches used.’

These delicate, white cups are all hand built in porcelain. Clare was awarded the 2007 Design Directions: Ceramic Futures Award and is a fellow of the Royal Society of Art.
