In my quest to scout out all rad ceramics made by lady illustrators, my newest favorite is Charlotte Mei. Based in South London, Charlotte has worked with a variety of big clients in fashion and editorial, and beyond, such as Converse, The V&A Museum (Victoria and Albert, for the not-so-British), I-D Magazine, Vice, and Penguin Books. Her style takes on new life when applied to ceramics, which are carried in several different stores and in her online shop.
What I love about Charlotte’s ceramics works is the use of this art-brut-esque style. She treats plates and bowls in particular as just another canvas for her lively illustrations. While there is a place for beautifully perfect hand-made ceramics, I enjoy the fact that none of her works are precisely circular; they feel more alive.
