Charlotte Barker – Ceramic Coolbox

Charlotte Barker is currently developing a porous terracotta cool-box for Bothy Stores and is interested in using the inherent qualities of clay to store and prepare food in an off-grid environment. Charlotte Barker is a sculptor making large-scale work in clay. She has recently completed her MA at the Royal College of Art, London and is based in Edinburgh. Her practice explores form, balance and the material qualities of clay. She enjoys pushing the physical boundaries of the material and testing its gymnastic potential. The work is often assembled from multiple pieces, is architectural in scale, and enjoys the humour of anthropomorphic forms in dialogue.
