Vicki Charles

Vicki Charles is a talented ceramic sculptor originally from Melbourne, Australia.

Growing up in Melbourne Vicki was immersed in culture and art from a young age which fueled her intrinsic creative nature. After leaving school she travelled around Australia and the world, including Europe, which was where she first really discovered art in all it’s glory and was inspired to pursue a creative profession. 

Upon her return to Melbourne she turned her hand to various creative outlets in her pursuit to find her niche such as creative writing, poetry, floristry, photography and oil painting. While she was successful in all her endeavours, it was ceramic sculpture that she really fell in love with and was fully realised under the tutelage of Klaus and Ingrid Dusselberg, 2 internationally renowned professional sculptor artists and tutors based in Melbourne. 

In 2015 a life-changing personal event became the catalyst for Vicki finally finding her sculpture style and what she wanted to say in her works. Her direction in life shifted and so did she, to Nelson to pursue her dream of becoming a professional artist.

Vicki explores her emotional connectedness to humanity in her sculpture. Finding inspiration through the words of philosophers and spiritual teachers like Rumi, who speak of love and compassion; as well as from inner journeys, symbolism and dreams. Each unique piece is sculpted by hand and moulded to shape delicately and skillfully at Vicki’s studio using ceramic clay. The stylized figures are then glazed in a high white gloss to symbolise the preciousness of human life and the lantern used throughout her works represents light and love.
