Charlotte Mayer was born in Prague and came to England with her family at an early age. She studied at Goldsmiths College, London and at the Royal College of Art of which she is an Associate. She is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors.
Many of her sculptures are cast into bronze from originals made of materials found in the studio or the countryside: tree trunks, leaves, the stalks of umbellifers, balsa scantlings and wax. These associations with natural forms are a response to nature in the abstract: air, water, fire or growth. To maintain the poise and fragility of each piece when cast, stretches the limits of wax and metal to their extremes. The organic surfaces of her sculptures, their rigid structures and repeated elements are all used as vocabulary in a personal language of movement through form.
Mayer has completed major public commissions for Alton Hospital, Hampshire, Basingstoke Hospital, Hampshire, The Barbican, City of London and Banque Paribas, Marylebone. Her work is held in many corporate and private collections and she exhibits regularly both in UK and abroad.
