Here’s our 2nd showcase this week, focusing on the work of ceramicist Charlotte Burke.
For Charlotte, her practice crosses over into both fine art and craft, creating questioning towards our ideas towards process and outcome.
As Charlotte states “my work aims to take the originality of making to evoke emotion through material qualities with a twist of unique style, to create a thought provoking response in relation to our own relationships with objects. In a world where buying an object or art is more acceptable then making it, I seek to en-devour to show how important the process of creation is. With Ceramics being an area of questioning in terms of whether it is art or craft? I take on the values within still life to demonstrates the story my objects represent. I use art to create a strong perform, craft to produce the skills needed to make and together create parallels to politically question how important making is in the wider world. I use both 2D and 3D approaches in sync to aid my making through reflection and ideas.”
