Born in 1965, Carol Long was raised on a farm in Stafford County Kansas.
.Working from a family farm studio in Kansas, Carol reproduces the beauty of her surrounding environment into her pieces using floral and insect motifs, combined with flowing lines, merging into leaf and plant details
Pieces are made by a variety of methods such as throwing, slabwork, extrusions, and hand building, along with pulled handles and attached multiple pieces that are textured with presses, slip trailing, stains and glazes.
Her work continues to evolve as she experiments with new ways of expressing the tiny beautiful intrinsic qualities of nature that we often take for granted.
Originally inspired to be an artist by her mother, she has also received inspiration from her three children, which explains the carefree whimsy evident in her pottery.More of Carol Long‘s pottery can be found at http://www.carollongpottery.com/.
