Ceramics by Charlotte Mei, via Badass Lady Creatives

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.
