   Carol Lim:

As a clay artist and with a background in professional interior designer, Carol enjoys creating hand built non-functional decorative pieces and sculptural work and she has a special interest in the use of color and texture to enhance these form. Carol is drawn to hand building and multi layered decorative techniques, often using handmade stamps and carving her clay surfaces, and even using found objects to imprint surfaces. Carol than uses oxides, under glazes, and glaze layering to accentuate these textures, to add interest and finish her pieces. Carol also enjoys making small sculptures of animals and whimsical characters.

Carol’s ceramic training includes various courses, and workshops over the past 10 years focusing on hand building, sculpture, texture, and image transfer. Carol has had pieces accepted in the Ottawa Guild of Potters juried exhibitions for both 2016 & 2017 and in the 2017 Fireworks Fusion Clay and Glass Bi-annual Exhibition. She was the recipient of the Ottawa Guild Of Potters Best Expression Award in 2016.
