Carrie Althouse - Virginia

A former Art Teacher of 9 years, now stay at home mom/Potter, Carrie creates both functional and non-functional stoneware. Either one you choose you will agree she has a rustic yet elegant style to her finished pieces. She is an avid outdoors man which highly influences her pieces. She eventually developed a highly textured natural feel to her pieces. Each piece is wheel thrown, hand carved, glazed and fired twice to a stoneware state and are food, microwave and oven safe.

Artist Statement

"I am artistically inspired by hiking tall mountains, paddleboarding crystal blue lakes, climbing textured rocks, camping under soft pine groves and skiing the curved face of mountains. I am in love with the smells, sights and sounds of nature". Carrie set out in 2007 to find and refine her pottery niche.
