Claire Loder, Them

Today I'm loving Claire Loder's heads.  Aren't they fabulous?  There is something about Them.  I could never pick just one.  I want to scoop up the whole bunch and take them all home, (especially that little blue one).  Claire is a ceramic artist from the U.K.  About her heads she says...."Although relatively shallow in physical depth my sculptures are intended to have a psychological complexity, they rarely look directly at the viewer, are often lost in thought or otherwise occupied." 
Clair has an amazing website and a blog that you can visit to learn more about her work. Very inspiring.  Can't wait for school to start because this makes me want to haul out the white clay and start a portrait project with the kids. 
Thank you Claire Loder for allowing us to share your work here!   


  1. I love these! They have such a mystery to them. Thanks for introducing me to Loder's work.

  2. There is a certain vulnerability on their faces.
