Carey Lowell

I was first introduced to clay in my Colorado high school art class. That was over 40 years ago. Today, I work mainly in porcelain, which I throw, handbuild, and slip cast. I like to stretch the clay to its limits of translucency, cut it, pierce it, disassemble forms and reassemble them. I sometimes view clay as fabric to be pieced together, draped, torn, ruffled, or appliquéd. Often, I use gold luster to highlight the imperfections in the glaze application.

My work has been shown at the Celadon Gallery in Water Mill, NY and Greenwich House Pottery in New York City. It is currently available at
