About

In my heart, there lives a potter.

Halito! My name is Carolyn Bernard Young and I am a registered Choctaw artist. Earth to Art is my pottery studio, built by my husband in 2012. It is just steps from our home out in the country in Parker County, Texas, near Weatherford.

My work is contemporary Native American pottery, thrown on the wheel, covered in black underglaze, then carved with bold designs that honor the art of my ancestors. It is my belief that the Native American symbols, patterns, spirits and totems carved on my pots are more than mere decoration. They are the soul of the pot.

This method of carving is called "sgraffito" - meaning "to scratch". The feel of the leather hard clay as I carve it feeds my soul, but the bright colors and bold designs make my heart sing!

Fired stoneware is durable - safe for the oven and dishwasher, though hand washing is always preferred for hand made work. Microwave safe too! Just know that, over time, you may notice changes in the surface, as with any ceramic piece. Use and enjoy it every day!

    My work begins on the potter’s wheel or with a slab of clay. I spend glorious hours etching images of spirit animals, cultural designs & patterns – all while listening to my favorite Native American flute music, in my studio in Weatherford, Texas.
