Carolyn creates bold, asymmetric sculptural vessels and forms in white earthenware with surfaces painted with abstracted imagery. She works by responding to both her material and to the rhythms of the form as she moves around inscribing marks, incising and scarifying through layers of matt vitreous slips and burnished terra sigillata. Her finished pieces unite the physicality of working with clay with the potential of the created surfaces.
Genders is an established ceramic artist and printmaker. The essence of her practice is the relationship of form, line, brushstroke and colour, evident in both her works in clay and on paper. She exhibits internationally and her work is represented widely in private and public collections. She is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association and a Member of Contemporary Applied Arts and is happy to be recently accepted as a Member of the AIC.
