1 can be 2+ balanced out of range for 15-17 1NT or 20-21 2NT, and if so may have 5 but not 5 in a major, or it may simply be clubs.
1 is routine for you with this pattern, an exaggerated Walsh style.
3 promises an unbalanced hand with 4 trumps and about a strong NT equivalent. Possible patterns for partner are 4=4=1=4, or 4=x=y=5+, or 5=x=y=6+.

Your options are 3NT (serious slam try), 4 (cue denying a high club honor), 4 (cue denying a high club honor AND the A), 4 (signing off), or 4NT (0314 RKC).
