What colour to paint…Charlotte Mei.

I love a ceramic and I think Charlotte Mei is with me!

I spotted her work in Oh Comely magazine and have been a fan ever since. An illustrator that uses ceramics as one of her canvases, Charlotte’s work is both tender and naive. Colours are watery washes with definite but soft black to ground and emphasise. I have pulled 3 of my favourite pieces from her website http://www.charlottemei.com: the white tiger ring from her jewellery range – classic blue and white with a playful shape, a commissioned illustration with a great colour palette (and outfit!), and finally a plate with two ladies on bikes, simple and effective with another aquarelle scheme. There are plenty more on her site including a smiling piece of toast, comforting and happy, which I might have to add to my kitchen wall…
