The Avenue Gallery – Feature Artist – Carolyn Houg

Carolyn Houg's sculptures are mid-fire clay finished with oxides, underglazes and stains. Each piece is unique and one of a kind. Playful and quirky, they often place the subjects in unlikely situations. Birds are riding when they can fly; polar bears sailing when they can swim. Many of her characters act against their usual instincts; sweet lions and fierce rabbits. All are meant to have us pause and consider all we have in common with our fellow creatures.

"My goal is to make people smile and feel a caring connection with the animals and birds that surround us and those that are endangered in other parts of the world." – Carolyn Houg
