Artist Statement

Charlotte Burke is a ceramicist that explores the ways everyday objects are perceived. Focusing on the relationship of 2D and 3D, she uses form, colour, pattern, surface and texture to re-construct and deconstruct the object to reveal something new. 

Her latest work 'Vase Abstraction' (2016), explores our expectation as one that's not always correct and when questioned it provokes new ways of thinking and consideration of the world around us. Each play a role in how we experience the everyday object through a familiarity not registering the implicit constructs of form, colour, texture and ornamentation that act as conduits to engage us with of the object. However if these layers of content ,context and meaning are interrogated through a deconstruction in their reordering and in the process of reconstruction a new potential of the object can be revealed. The creative process is engaged and gives structure to a seemingly intuitive random response in arriving at new hybrids explored with the interplay of 2 and 3 dimension.

Personal Statement

I am currently studying a Master in Ceramics at Cardiff School of Art and Design, with a wide and varying range of practical skills including mould making, plaster casting, glazing and firing. My work explores the relationship of process and outcome, in relation to objects and how we perceive, engage and identify them. I am hoping to extend my work further in ceramics industry and how ceramics is perceived in the wider world.
