Melding the decadence of Art Nouveau and the whimsy of Alice in Wonderland, artist Carol Prolonged (previously) transforms humble clay vessels with an array of small spheres, curled handles, and densely laid stripes. Her decorative will work get started with easy, wheel-thrown designs that are pushed, bent, and warped into swelling kinds evocative of natural content or additional representational subject matter make any difference like a deer or mushroom. Lengthy then works by using slip trailing and an elaborate glazing process to add a staggering sum of embellishment to the amorphous sculptures, mimicking the patterns, textures, and colors discovered in the course of the purely natural environment.

The Kansas-centered artist will be presenting at Clay Con West this January, and you can stick to her most up-to-date functions and news about obtainable parts on Instagram.
