Clay Pipe Music is a London based label run by illustrator Frances Castle.  Inspired by small press pioneers like Rena Gardiner, each release comes in carefully conceived limited edition packaging designed by Frances. If there is demand, further editions are produced. Initially Clay Pipe produced hand made CDs, but more recent releases have been on  numbered vinyl. Clay Pipe specialises in releasing atmospheric music, with a strong theme or sense of place. Frances Castle is not only a wonderful illustrator and curator of her label but is also an artist producing her own music with two albums as The Hardy Tree:  the 2010 label debut ‘The Fields Lie Sleeping Underneath’ , and most recently  2017’s Through Passages of Time. The Clay Pipe Music website should be visited and the catalogue explored if only to see the beauty of the packaging.
