Imogen Charleston

Website: www.imogencharleston.co.uk/

Imogen is a ceramic artist based on the Dorset coast. Her forms are imbued with the narrative of the landscape, incorporating foraged materials and wild clays. “Now more than ever we need to reconnect with the earth and honor what it provides for us as humans.” This recent collection was developed while artist in residence at Poole Museum. It incorpates woven elements which are made with ghost fishing net fibre. The raw materials used – clays, rocks, wood –  have all been gathered and processed by hand, inspired by traditional methods.

Biography:

After leaving school she gained a BTEC in Art & Design from Bournemouth & Poole College of Art (now AUB). She then went on to study electronics, and had a career as an engineer for over 10 years. Imogen also collborated with artist Nic Rawling and co-founded  The Paper Cinema, who have toured their live animation shows internationally since 2004.

 

Feeling a need for change, in 2007 Imogen went traveling. The trip included a 9 month journey around Japan, and further 4 months in New Zealand. It gave her a wealth of experiences and opportunity to meet local communities. During this time she came to rediscover her passion for clay, and in 2012 graduated with BA in Applied Art & Design.
