Charlotte is a ceramic designer and maker based in the heart of Northamptonshire. She creates individually handmade one-off ceramic pieces from her home studio. It is here that she enjoys spending time on new, natural designs while listening to music and drinking lots of tea.
Charlotte has always loved art and being creative. Her journey began when she found herself fascinated with the qualities of clay as a material many years ago. She is inspired by everything natural and organic, especially close-up surfaces such as tree bark, rocks and plants. Whilst concealed among these natural surroundings in the landscape, she feels relaxed and at home.
"I find it amazing to see the changes in rocks and coves caused by weathering and erosion from the sea, bumpy and colourful linear patterns found within fields and hills, and the surfaces in nature where no two marks are ever the same. It's this particular aspect that my ceramics connects to. You will find inspiration in my work ranging from dandelions to clouds, and leaves to frozen lakes."
Graduating from Coventry University in 2008 with a BA Hons degree in Surface Decoration, Charlotte used this time to explore and specialise in ceramics and has since been continuing to develop and broaden her work from her studio.
