20 Beautiful Clay Sculptures Created By Carol Long

Published 1 month ago

Carol Long, a Kansas-based artist, creates colorful clay sculptures by drawing influence from plant and animal life. In a note to DeMilked, the artist revealed that she has worked in clay for almost 40 years and has been pursuing her current body of work for over 12 years now.

Talking about her inspirations, the artist said, “Manipulating a piece of clay and solving problems throughout the process has always been intriguing. One will never stop learning when working with clay. Clay can continue after firing to look as fluid as it was before firing.”

This is how she describes her process of creating the textured and embellished sculptures– “Usually pieces are based on the vessel. Wheel thrown, slab, extrusion, cast. Altered considerably from their original form and then the surface is slip trailed.  Fired with commercial glazes to cone 5 oxidation.”

Check out some of her wonderful works in the gallery below.
