Charlotte Hupfield

Handmade ceramics by Charlotte Hupfield

Northamptonshire based ceramic artist who specialises in creating individual hand-built and slip-cast pieces, each one unique in it's design.

Charlotte has always loved art and being creative, her journey began when she found herself fascinated with the qualities of clay as a material many years ago.

Graduating from Coventry University in 2008 with a BA Hons degree in Surface Decoration, Charlotte used this time to explore and specialise in ceramics and has been continuing to develop and broaden her work from her home studio ever since. She enjoys using a mixture of making techniques including hand building and slip casting which gives variation to her work. The signature element of incorporating glass into her work gives pieces another dimension and extra colour.

Charlotte uses a locally sourced stoneware clay that is a very durable material, allowing many pieces to be kept outside in all weather conditions. Her work is fired in an electric kiln up to 1260’C.

The collection we have in the gallery is ever changing, this reflects the on-going development of Charlotte's work.
