In 1988 Cynthia Carr settled on a remote and scenic hilltop in Central Kentucky and established Crosswinds Pottery. With a B.F.A. from the Cleveland Institute of Art and an M.F.A. from Tulane University, Cynthia had the foundation to begin a successful career as a studio potter. She produces traditional wheel-thrown stoneware pottery, fired in a propane kiln. The functional ware has a clean line that is enhanced with rich reduction glazes.
Utilizing mixed media and found objects, Cynthia has introduced a new line of work for the home and garden. She combines rustic metal and thrown clay forms to create birdbaths, totem sculptures and birdhouses. Her unique table, floor and hanging lamps, with metal shades of various patinas, are new and exciting. Weathered wood, found metal and clay are incorporated into wall hanging designs of unique character.
