Meet the maker Claire Manwani

I've been making pots since 1982, when I discovered the world of ceramics at my local art centre, Island Arts in London. I later ended up working there, running classes and workshops. Then in 1997 a couple of friends and I opened a studio, running classes and making pots.

In 2002 I moved to the Highlands, near Loch Ness, where I stayed for 7 years, then to Lowestoft to live with my dad, and then in 2016 I moved to Reading.
