Carrie Martin's Profile

About

First and foremost: I'm a potter and tile maker in Tallahassee, Florida. However, I also have been known to dabble in sewing, book making, painting, sketching, journaling, creative writing, papermaking, jewelry making, mosaics and whatever else I could get my hands on. My tile mold making skills were learned at the Moravian Pottery & Tile Works in Doylestown, PA, where I took a workshop in 2008. This is also where I fell in love with the idea of tilemaking in general. I feel like each piece could be part of a bigger art form or viewed as it's own little treasure. Since I started on this tile making adventure I've implemented other techniques which keep Corduroy Clay constantly evolving, but retaining it's roots at the same time.

I've been selling pottery since 2005 after I received a free kiln and fixed it up. At that time I mostly sold out of my home during home shows, where I'd transform my home into an open gallery full of art, refreshments, friends of friends and lots of family. Etsy has allowed me to expand like never before, with pieces of my work all over the world and wonderful stories from my customers too.
