PLAYING IN THE MUD FOR MANY YEARS:
CNC has been a practicing potter working under the name of CNC Pottery since 1971. Getting on in years, Carolyn hopes this website will inform people of her continuing pottery work. Tempus fugit, but an artist never really retires. In October 2019 she moved to The Quadrangle in Haverford, PA and is enjoying the pottery facilities there as well as its campus with a variety of creative people.
CNC's submission to the 2021 Small Favors exhibit at the Clay Studio in downtown Philadelphia was on on display from March 9 through May 5. Her assemblage of 1" scale miniatures and casual clay doodles was made using Standard 103 red earthenware clay, her favorite clay for throwing minis. All items accepted for the show had to fit inside a 3"X3"X3" cube. She had 3 pieces in last year's show, but this year was only eligible to have one shown.
New Bern, North Carolina's Craven County Arts Council is hosting a main gallery exhibit entitled ART3 with CNC represented by a whimsical piece entitled "Birdwatchers". Opening reception is May 14 from 5-8PM. New Bern was her home for 14 years, and she is delighted to have her work in the gallery once again.
Happy news! The pottery studio at the Quadrangle has reopened after a LONG Covid hiatus. Carolyn seems to be the only one using the spacious studio at present but is taking full advantage of the facilities up to 10 hours a day--not bad for an old gal. Currently she is concentrating on her authentic replicas of redware and other traditional American pottery. You are encouraged to contact her if you have any special requests for redware in your period settings.
February 2021: One of CNC's examples of work in progress since her return to the studio is a figurative figure carved in white earthenware.
Selected pieces of CNC's pottery are available on her Etsy page, CNC Pottery Minis, as well as on occasional EBAY auctions.
