Long Meg Vessel II
Long Meg Vessel II by ceramicist Charlotte McLeish is a hand-pinched terracotta piece depicting a fabled character from London folklore. Long Meg, who’s antics became popular after first being published in the 1580s, was described as a “feisty” woman who went about dressed as a man with a cudgel slung over her shoulder. This piece belongs to a collection of decorative works portraying scenes from stories and legends of old London. Charlotte has contemporised classical shapes and motifs by using modern ceramic techniques and her own playful storytelling.
