Carolyn Phillips




Once upon a time, over four decades ago, all I attempted to create in clay was almost immediately destroyed. One high school student wondering out loud to classmates in my ceramic class said, "I bet everything in Mrs. Phillips' house is made from clay!" My students saw a passion I had not then acknowledged.

Time races on and is too elusive to manifest all the mind's visualizations in clay, and mixed media. But from the dust of the earth, hands mixing in water, manipulating forms in space, hues, textures, through firing processes, creations emerge from the joy and exhilaration of exploring clays.

May this passion be un-ending.
