I'm Claire Kirby-Graven and in 2020 I took a huge leap of faith. From working in financial services I completely changed direction. Now I am a full time potter living and making pots in Wimborne, Dorset. I create pottery in my small sunny home studio with my potter's wheel and electric kiln. I live in a beautiful part of the world with golden sands in one direction and stunning countryside in the other. Plenty of inspiration all around me particularly in my busy home where I live with my husband, kids and my furry son, Barney the border collie.
CKG Ceramics is my passion, with handcrafted pottery, made in small batches. All my pieces are designed, thrown, glazed and fired by me. Each piece is unique therefore no two will be exactly the same. My pottery is glazed with food safe, lead free glazes and fired to stoneware temperature which makes it strong and durable. My pots are made with love and attention, this makes each one special and I really hope people enjoy using them as much as I enjoy making them.
