Inspired by demonstrations by a potter, Hamada, a "Japanese treasure", Carole began clay classes in the early 70's. She continued with classes and workshops with famous Americans and potters from other countries. She has had a one person show, her work was displayed and sold in the gift shop of the Museum of Composition and Design in New York City, and she has, for over 40 years, displayed her work in indoor and outdoor art festivals, including Ann Arbor, MI, State College, PA, New York City, and the Three River's Art Festival in Pittsburgh, PA. She has juried for art clubs including the South Hills Art League and the Craftsman's Guild. She has also been an advisor for the artist market of the Three River's Art Festival for many years. Carole's hand-crafted earrings and pins are created using templates with shaped and rolled-in colored porcelains. For added design, she uses sgraffito, silver wire, and imprints of ocean shells and found objects. Each piece is signed and dated, and when finished, Silver French earwires are added to the earrings. For her functional ware, Carole designs wheel thrown and hand-build ( one of a kind) stoneware and porcelain pieces. For decoration, she uses colored slips, sgraffito, colored inlays; and ocean shells, found objects, and Japanese wooden carved pieces as imprints.
