Clare Taylor

Clare Taylor is an Artist Educator based in the East Midlands. In 2016, she founded and now runs Bus and Bird Arts, a Participatory Arts organisation championing learning and creativity within communities. As an artist, her own practice is multi-disciplinary and heavily inspired by storytelling. Clare graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a First Class BA Hons degree in Crafts having specialised in Ceramics and Textiles. Her ceramic sculptures enabled her to win the Ninth INAX Design Prize for Europeans and have a residency in Tokoname, Japan.

Clare has been involved in public art projects for the past fifteen years. Recent work has ranged from a permanent hosiery installation for Mansfield Museum’s ‘Made in Mansfield’ gallery, bespoke shadow puppets commissioned for Nottingham Mela by Real Creative Futures through to being appointed Inspire’s Visual Artist on their ‘Home Cooked Heritage’ Heritage Fund project. Clare worked in educational settings for two decades with a broad spectrum of learners from pre-school children through to professional adults. She has worked in diverse environments, the most unusual being at Manchester Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre’s Pearce Ward teaching ceramic sculpture and stop frame animation to cystic fibrosis patients in their bedrooms.
