This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Charles Moses Brown (1904 – 1987)

Born in Mayport, FL., Charles Brown moved to the Mandarin area in Jacksonville, FL at age two and remained a lifelong resident.

Brown began as a painter in the 1940's and discovered his love of clay in 1961 while taking an art class at the University of Florida. His pots were made from clay he ordered from out of state and rich clay he found in Mandarin on the south banks of the St. Johns River.

He created many different items that included long necklaces with clay beads that could be worn or wall hung, also Christmas Orange ornaments, but primarily he built large shape pots and wall hangings. He use the slab and pinch coil method to build pots that he fired in the Raku method by pulling them hot from the kiln into a pile of wet saw dust. This smoke created the different patinas on the pottery glazes. One series of later pots called Black on Black was highly sought out by collectors. This series was the influence of works by another Jacksonville artist Ben'h Usry in 1972.

Charles Brown was one of the original members of the 'Art Celebration' Group that had thirteen members that began showing annually from 1972 - 1995. This group included Memphis Wood (Jacksonville's First Lady of Art) along with other notable regional and Jacksonville Artist such as Joseph Dodge, Enzo Torcoletti, Margaret Koscielny and Ben'h Usry to name a few.

During the 1960's - 1980's Brown toured the country and was in major Art and Craft shows. He signed his work on the back or bottom with his initials C.B. and sometimes the date.

Charles Brown has work in the University of North Florida Campus (UNF) library that is showcased for students to view and study. His museums exhibits include Cranbrook academy of Art Museum, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art, Mint Museum of Art Charlotte, North Carolina, and Museum of Arts & Sciences, Daytona Beach, FL.
