Welcome to My Studio
Earth to Art is the pottery studio of registered Choctaw potter, Carolyn Bernard Young in Weatherford, Texas. The studio/gallery is open during classes, special events, or by appointment. Just call if you want to stop by - I'm in the studio most every day and would love to show you around! Call 817-269-5375 for gate access.
For 33 years, I was a quality engineer for a major aerospace company. Midway through my career, looking for a way to relieve stress, I discovered and fell in love with clay.
Without a degree in art, I was determined to learn from the best. For many years, I spent a week each summer at Arrowmont School of Art in Gatlinburg, TN, learning from the best: Lana Wilson, Ellen Shankin, Josh DeWeese, Pete Pinnell, and Kathy Triplett to name a few. At home, I took classes from the best in Texas - Dale Neese, Daphne Hatcher, Mark Epstein and many others. I bought a wheel and practiced my craft every day, preparing for the day I could retire and live my dream - to be a full-time potter.
In 2009, retirement from aerospace was finally possible and in 2011 I reconnected with my long-lost love, Sam. It's been a whirlwind ever since!
On October 1, 2011 Sam & I were married at the beautiful Weston Gardens in Fort Worth. We bought a home on two acres in Weatherford, where we live with our two precious dogs (Sadie & Cheyenne). In 2012, we built a new 1200 sf studio and now I spend every day working in this magical place!
