Let me tell you a little about myself…

I am Carolyn Bernard Young, a Choctaw Artist, making contemporary ceramic art with Native American roots. Earth to Art is my studio in Weatherford, Texas.

My work begins with a slab of clay.  After forming a piece, it is covered with three layers of black slip or underglaze. I spend glorious hours etching images of spirit animals, cultural designs & patterns – all while listening to my favorite Native American flute music.  The end results resemble scratchboard or woodcuts…and sometimes with a surprise of bright color.

I love surprises, don’t you?  Carving clay feeds my soul and I am grateful that I get to do so all day, every day, in the studio of my dreams.
