Charlie’s making practice centres on exploring the value and meaning of unsung objects, to allow others to think. Her influences come from miscellanea: objects that exist in archives from past lives. She engages with everyday materials to form an honest response, making things with her own hands. Her construction processes, often informed by traditional making methods, are meticulous and repetitive, allowing her time to create organically.
Charlie makes both sequential pieces that are displayed as a landscape, suited to exhibition display, as well as one-off large-scale pieces for interior and exterior environments. She is fluid in her approach, meaning she adapts to project briefs and clients’ needs to produce an authentic response. She has worked with a range of organisations, such as arts-sector charities as well as local authority councils.
