I have added a page on the Nova Scotia Artist, Carol Smeraldo.

Carol is prolific potter and sculptor. Her works in raku and low -fire porcelain frequently incorporate other media. Though varied in style she displays an ongoing love for the sea: an underpinning theme for her explorations in media, design, and more recently,  the cycle of creativity.

Carol is also greatly recognized for her teaching and organizing work in the province: the Halifax Studio School of Pottery, her links with NSCADU, and in the development of the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council to name some highlights.

Enjoy the story of Carol Smeraldo’s career and a sampling of her creations,and please share your thoughts.
