Claudia, the ceramicist
Claudia started her journey with clay in 2017 when she fell deeply and instantly in love. She was working in the fast-paced finance industry in Hong Kong at the time and discovered pottery had the power to melt away stress; the throwing process was her form of meditation.
At the beginning of 2019, she started teaching part time at Two Parts Studio, where she shared her passion and experience with a small, but active pottery community. The most rewarding aspect of teaching, is getting to see how others interact with clay and watching students fall in love with ceramics, just like she did.
Later that year, she moved to Vancouver right before the pandemic struck. This unique situation meant she had time to invest in her other passions and saw her complete a yoga teacher training program. Realising there has never been a better opportunity to become a full-time potter, she grabbed the chance with both hands and created her first collection of functional tableware.
