Carol Southerland, Potter
New to the world of pottery, I’ve wanted to try my hand in this medium for as long as I could remember, but as for many, life got in the way.
It’s really not a surprise that as an avid gardener, I would also enjoy playing in the dirt INDOORS! After a few lessons, I was hooked and already planning my home studio! I am a work in progress; enjoying both the wheel, hand building, and sculpting in my third year of this journey.
Now that I’m retired… I am blessed with time, desire, passion and great mentors to guide my practice. I thank the Lord everyday for repurposing my soul and helping me create organic, unstructured pieces; some of which are functional, while others are purely decorative, but all creations come from my heart as I continue to “throw my life away!”
