Charly Blackburn is an artist and material explorer. Her practice is process-intensive and through chemical experimentation, the works reveal the power and magical properties of minerals.

Born in the UK’s agricultural flatlands dubbed 'The Fens', she has since studied performance design at Central Saint Martins, worked in fine art conservation and directed large ensemble live art/sound shows. She was a self taught ceramicist until 2019 when she received a scholarship to study Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art. It’s 2024.
