Biography from The Marshall - LeKAE Gallery:
Mixed media artist Carol Green creates sculptural vessels that have a distinctly Asian, organic aesthetic in clay and metals. On Green’s clay gourd vessels, the addition of branches and vines of cast bronze transform the jars into modern artifacts.

The Ikebana vessels are constructed of copper and cast bronze, with a bowl for flower arrangement suspended by sculptural bronze vines.

With an adept concentration of textures and imaginative contours, Green’s work reminds its owners of the purely organic nature of clay. Her raku fired, mica-embedded earthenware is a textural mix of shimmering glints against a dark clay body, like stars in a midnight sky.

Green describes her raku method as follows: “Once the kiln reaches 1000 degrees, it is shut off and opened. I carefully lift the red-hot glowing pots out and place them in a steel container filled with sawdust, straw and paper.” (Bronze lids with stems, branches, or vines cast in metal perform a function and alter the architectural lines of a piece.) “The pots ignite the combustibles and a lid is placed over the container. Next the smoke penetrates the pores of each clay vessel, turning it varied hues of black, brown and salmon.” Bits of straw and paper create smoky abstract patterns.

Throughout her career in the arts, Green has taught ceramics, sculpture and metalsmithing in Ohio and Michigan. During the mid-1970’s and early 1980’s, Green made tableware and basins on her potter’s wheel, and pressed tile by hand in Washington State.

Green's exhibitions include a German craft invitational that included museum-quality works in glass and other media by American artists.
