A behind the scenes peek into a ceramics studio at what happens in the day in the life of a clay artist and sculptor.

Have you ever wondered what goes into making ceramic bowls and mugs by hand or what a ceramic sculpture artist does in their studio?

Come and visit local artist and ceramics teacher Carolyn Warren-Langford, as she creates artworks from clay in a six-week Artist in Residence in the Whitely Fishbowl Gallery, from Thursday October 20.

Watch as she demonstrates the techniques that go into making her large bowls and sculptures, starting from blobs of clay to completed works of art. You might even get the chance to try your hand at making some beads for a community project called "The Bead Project."


About the Artist

Carolyn has been working with clay for around 25 years, completing her art degree working in clay, glass and jewellery at Curtin University in 2002.  She began exhibiting her figurative ceramic sculptures in local galleries before moving to Melbourne in 2013. There her work has been exhibited many times at various galleries before she relocated back to Perth in 2020 to be closer to her family.

Along with her clay figurative sculptures, lately she has been focusing on making bowls, large and small and then painting images on them.  Her work holds that ancient connection between human hand and raw earth.  Every piece is entirely handmade and there are no two pieces the same.

You can see some of Carolyn's sculptures and bowls in the window display - you may want to take one home with you, or even book a lesson!
