"My first visit to North Carolina was in the summer of 1987. I was captivated by the landscape - the rolling hills, the tall trees and lush vegetation. My work both in clay and textiles, is adorned with the natural images that I encounter in my everyday life in our beautiful state."
Carolyn Doyle has been working in clay since 1995 when she enrolled in pottery classes at the Lincoln Center in Carrboro. She has since studied intensively with Barbara Higgins and has attended workshops with Cynthia Bringle and Mark Peters. She is a founding member of the Red Clay Co-op and has a studio at the Clay Centre in Carrboro, where she also teaches classes on the pottery wheel. When not working at the Clay Centre, Carolyn crafts quilts and scarves, again borrowing images, colors and textures from the local landscape. "My goal is to create beautiful items that people want to touch and use everyday." Carolyn's work can be seen at The Clay Centre in Carrboro and at Womancraft in Chapel Hill.
