Claire Webster, Director and Artist of House of Cool
Webster has worked in a variety of artistic fields including greetings card and gift product design, retail, web design and online marketing. House of Cool represents a return to Webster's artistic roots.
Webster utilizes a wide variety of china to construct her broken china jewelry. It is carefully cut, shaped and smoothed to make, pendants, rings, cufflinks and earrings. One of her latest creations is ‘shard’ necklaces. In crafting these, she decided to emphasize the characteristics of the broken china including scratches, chips and curves with printing on the back as these are all normal characteristics of vintage china. She has a complete range made from ‘Old Country Roses’ china – an especially popular vintage china made by Royal Albert. Webster also makes products for men. She offers a selection of stunning cufflinks including some using Coalport Flow Blue china. Coalport Flow Blue is a dramatic cobalt blue which, in combination with sterling silver and fine silver, makes a perfect accessory for men.
