Carol Scott was born and brought up in London. Both her parents were writers, and many family holidays were spent in Cornwall.  Carol went to RADA and then for twenty years worked in theatre and television management. In 1986 she moved to Cornwall to become a farmer and potter. Self taught, her early influences were every potter's work she came across. Now established, her influences continue to be eclectic, but from a wider range of design and from nature.  Her work is intended for daily use. She no longer exhibits, selling her work only through galleries.


Carol works with a smooth white earthenware clay which she decorates using coloured slips and other pigments. She does not biscuit fire but puts a transparent glaze onto the decorated raw pot and fires to 1100c.
