The latest exhibition in The Bowes Museum’s refurbished ceramics gallery showcases the unique work of ceramicist Charlotte Hodes.
Charlotte Hodes is a British artist renowned for her large intricate papercuts and ornate ceramic vessels. Central to her work is the exploration of the female figure and its relationship to decoration and pattern.
Using standard vessel forms and everyday tableware, which she treats as her ‘canvas’, she builds up rich and complex surfaces through a direct process of drawing and collage.
This exhibition presents work from the last decade, from Hodes' time at the Spode factory and the Wallace Collection up to the present day, and includes vases as well as examples of her tableware.
