Carol is best known for her quixotic sculptures. Handbuilt with coils, her often surreal sculptures are satirical and narrative. Abstracting from mythology, literature and life's observations, Carol's work is an embodiment of the complex nuances within nature and humankind. Her subject matter ranges anywhere from conceptual ideas to political commentaries.
