Carol gives us insight:

"I am a ceramic artist working in stoneware and porcelain combining traditional methods to create sculptural pieces, which are often fused with, metal, wood or slate.

I studied Fine Art specialising in sculpture, at Norwich University College of the Arts. Since graduating with a BA (Hons) I have worked from my studio in Suffolk surrounded by the glorious countryside.

Much of my work evolves as a response to both the beauty and fragility within the natural world. These shapes and patterns are then distilled into non-representational interpretations.

My main area of expertise is in the use of smoke and pit firing techniques. I seek a balance between the controlled structure of the work and the chaos of the firing. These elements combine in the production of the finished form."
