Claudia Luque - Artist
As a marketeer born in Colombia, I have lived and travelled in many counties round the world and it is the variety of cultures and art that has inspire me to work in ceramics. I have spent the last 14 years learning and exploring ceramic techniques and now I am dedicated to create and exhibit my ceramic work.
About my work
I love to work with clay as it allows me open exploration. I am always trying new techniques, glazes and firing methods and I have an open way of thinking which comes from being in contact to multiple cultures both by living in London and also for my extensive travelling.
I use a variety of techniques including hand building, throwing and slip casting and I also use different firing techniques being Raku the one I enjoy the most.
Claudia now offers pottery classes for adults suitable for all abilities. The lessons cover variety of hand-building techniques including pinch pots, coiling, slab-work, working with press-moulds and modelling, as well as learning the principals of throwing and the wheel.
The lessons are at a dedicated pottery studio at the bottom of a garden in Finchley. FInd out more and book your space at www.claudialuque.com/studio/
