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 will be 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 must 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.
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 from 4 -9 hours a day--not bad for an old gal.
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.
