Event map

Charlotte Hodes is a British artist who is 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.


She uses standard vessel forms and everyday tableware, which she treats as her ‘canvas’, to build up rich and complex surfaces through a direct process of drawing and collage.

Two overriding themes in Hodes’ work, that she proposes to address in this display, involve the relationship between the pictorial and the pattern, and the representation of women. Her display will present examples of work from her time at the Spode factory and the Wallace Collection, up to the present day, and will include vases as well as examples of her tableware.
