Carolyn Means creates functional ceramics of timeless beauty. For one of her glazes, she mixes in oak-wood ash and paints on layers that organically alter during firing, resulting in her signature style, which reflects the complexity of nature. After college in Massachusetts and working in New York, Means moved to the Bay Area, where she taught grade school. She took her first ceramic classes at Richmond Art Center, followed her passion, and became a full-time ceramicist. A Marin County resident, she has had her ceramic studio in Point Reyes Station for fifteen years.
