An exhibition by the esteemed ceramicist of work inspired by her upbringing in rural Oxfordshire in the village of Wootton near Woodstock. Claudia Clare is known for creating work that has a social commentary and in this exhibition, that commentary is highly personal and revolves around the artist's childhood and family dynamics. Zuleika Gallery is delighted to present this exhibition that takes place in the artist's childhood home, Zions Hill in Wootton. The house remains unmodernised and as such serves a fitting backdrop to the work, creating a snapshot of the recent past through which to view the enduring beauty of this quiet corner of Oxfordshire.
