Carolanne Currier - Ceramic Artist

After a full career in the health field, I discovered the joy of clay. I have been making pots for about 7 years.  I enjoy making functional and decorative high-fired work, and have discovered that atmospheric firings (firings where heat is created by a flame that travels through the kiln) give me the look that pleases me the most.  I like pots with a natural form and surface - pots that retain evidence of their plastic clay origin, and whose slips and earthy shino glazes record the path of the flame and the effects of prolonged heat.  My pots are meant to be enjoyed in every day life; for a cup of tea, a meal, or to hold a bouquet of flowers for the table.  My goal is combine the output of head, hands, and heart to make the ordinary a little more special.
