About

Charlotte's journey. . .

Charlotte is a ceramic designer/maker based in the heart of Northamptonshire, UK, creating individually handmade one-off ceramic pieces from her studio at home. It is here that she enjoys spending time on commissions, personalised orders and bespoke natural designs while drinking 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.

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 been continuing to develop and broaden her work from her studio ever since.

The signature element of incorporating glass into her work gives pieces another dimension and extra colour.

Enjoying any challenge, Charlotte loves to create special bespoke pieces and welcomes your ideas for commissions.

Inspiration

Charlotte is inspired by everything natural and organic – especially close up surfaces such as tree bark, rocks, and plants.

“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 is this particular aspect that my ceramics connects to. You will find collections of my work ranging from dandelions to clouds, and leaves to frozen lakes.”
