Swallow Goblet I
Swallow Goblet I is part of a new collection by London-based ceramicist Charlotte McLeish. Charlotte draws inspiration from intricately illustrated botanical books that she has accumulated, as she combines classical shapes and motifs with modern ceramic techniques and playful storytelling. This hand-pinched terracotta goblet is particularly influenced by Charlotte’s upbringing in the Midlands, where she was constantly surrounded by many forms of nature in the ancient woodlands and open fields around her. Birds, hares and foxes regularly occur throughout her work as a reflection on her time growing up there.
