"I love the texture and the coolness of clay, the opportunity to work with my body as well as my mind, and I'm energized by the many possibilities of the material. I relish the privilege of making things that others will cherish, take into their homes, and treasure for generations."

Carol Barclay's work in white clay is recognizable by its undulating organic design. In the course of more than three decades in the studio, Barclay has learned how to gently coax the soft clay into graceful whirls and elegant constructions. Her forms seem to freeze a moment of fluidity, with references to flowing fabric, sea forms and garden blooms. Barclay first designs organic shapes of white clay, then sculpts, carves and combines them to create elegant, visually exciting sculptural forms.
