The root of Carol Eckert’s work lies in the archetypal creation and flood stories, heroic journeys, and parables of good and evil that lie at the heart of every culture.

With the simple and ancient technique of coiling, originally used to create vessels, she makes complex narrative pieces that continue to remind viewers of the stories that we share as inhabitants of the earth.
