Charlotte McLeish

East London-based ceramicist Charlotte McLeish makes elegant stoneware vases and vessels. Drawing inspiration from ancient Greek and Egyptian ceramics, her pieces offer a pure and refined take on a traditional style. Having grown up in a family of jewellers, she has always been fascinated with hand-made processes and went on to study Ceramic Design at Central St Martins. Charlotte combines five different clays and uses only two dry glazes, resulting in her pieces having strong visual unity.

THE PROCESS

Charlotte’s ceramics are handmade using a combination of pinching and coiling methods. They are decorated with slips and glazes, which Charlotte often mixes with organic materials, such as sand and seaweed. Her pieces are heavily informed by classical shapes and often include a hand-painted illustration inspired by traditional storytelling be it Greek Mythology or Elizabethan folklore.

Maker's Quote

I often visit the British Museum and the Natural History Museum, where I make sketches of ceramics and take notes of the handles, shapes and techniques.
