Carrie Carlson Ceramics are handmade in Carrie's basement studio and fired in small batches making each piece one of a kind. The process of transforming raw clay into the finished pieces takes multiple stages of treatments and firings, each ranging in their time and complexity to complete. The average piece takes 3 weeks to complete from start to finish. Carrie has been creating ceramics for 28 years and shares her home studio with her husband Matt Carlson who teaches art at a local high school. Together with their twin toddlers, Carrie and Matt host local art events in their garage gallery space supporting and celebrating other local talents and raising money for causes that are important to them. After the birth of their twins, Carrie started her new job as a full time mom, after working in the non-profit sector for over half a decade. Making ceramics is her creative outlet and way of connecting with her community.
