Charlie and Blair believe in the handmade aesthetic of design. Together we run our studio straight from our home in Brisbane, Australia. We specialise in ceramic pieces that simply bring beauty to a space. All of our pieces are made in limited batches, turning each fire into a 'clean slate' of possibilities.
Adrian 'Charlie' Smith is The Potter behind the operations of Charlie and Blair. Having studied Health Science at University, Adrian was seeking an outlet that was both organic and handmade. A hobby that started on the weekends soon turned into a great passion. Being well-travelled, he has been inspired by wares from Japan, Turkey and Nepal. Influences also stem from his cultural background, the Philippines.
Heather 'Blair' Lockhart is The Painter behind Charlie and Blair. Having a Bachelor of Design, majoring in Visual Communication Design, Heather works as a Graphic Designer by day and Glazer by night. Highly illustrative, Heather likes to use quirky designs and doodles in her work. Being heavily influenced by Turkish, Korean and Japanese designs, Heather reflects these inherent qualities through her choice of patterns and colours.
