Charlotte is a sculptor making primarily large-scale work in clay with more recent installations incorporating wood. Charlotte is intrigued by the irregularities of the handmade object and the creative territory that lies between impulse, intuition and technical skill. Charlotte plays with the viewer’s perception of material qualities by experimenting with the surface and texture of ceramics and wood. Recent work explores the painterly properties of the surface of ceramic vessels, contrasted with the natural markings of the newly sawmilled wood benches that elevate them.
Charlotte graduated with an MA Ceramics from the Royal College of Art (RCA) in 2015 and the Glasgow School of Art in 2010. While at RCA she was awarded the Eduardo Paolozzi Travel Bursary for a research trip to Ghana and Togo. Recent exhibitions include The Pioneers, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, and Fresh, British Ceramics Biennial, Stoke-on-Trent.
