Carol Metcalfe studied Arts & Design at the University of Sunderland. She then went on to research ash glazes from arable crop waste for her PhD and has written articles on the subject for Ceramic Review. Carolís art practice incorporates her home-grown ash glazes together with plants and other locally-found materials, collected on the farm where she lives, near Richmond, North Yorkshire. This summer a wind turbine has been installed to provide electricity for the farm cottage and kiln. Carolís pieces have a particular emphasis on texture, inspired by natural forms and natureís effects on man-made objects Ė erosion, corrosion and colonisation.
