About Carolyn

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!
