Ceramicist Claudia Clare makes clay pots to tell stories.  Her practice mixes ethnographic social research with ceramic practices and writing and includes drawing, photography and film making as part of the process.

The Clause 28 Tea Set commemorated the year of protest in 1988.  Clause 28 banned schools and local authorities from the ‘promotion’ of ‘homosexuality as a pretended family relationship’.  The tea set depicts some of the more audacious actions against the law, including lesbians abseiling into the House of Lords, the invasion of the Six O’Clock News, and the Mother’s Day occupation of the Ideal Home Exhibition.
