Charlotte Jones

17th January - 30th April 2015

 

Solo showcase by Cornish based ceramicist Charlotte Jones.

 

Cornwall with its dramatic land and seascapes inspire Charlotte to make her ceramics, observing her surroundings so design decisions become intuitive.  Shells, pebbles and natural found objects are explored in detail by drawing and painting to inform the pots. 

Her distinctive pots are made from coloured stoneware clay, using oxides and self dug clay. The coloured clays are used as a three-dimensional collage material: layers contrast and merge. Pot bases are thrown, coils added, pinched and scraped into an organic vessel. Burnished with a pebble when leather hard, the pots are through high firing returned to stone.
