Nationally recognized potter Carol Gentithes' ceramics embody literature,
mythology, and life observations, and are meant to be humorous and
mythological. She is a graduate of Duke University with a BA in English
literature. She traveled extensively before receiving her BFA from Alfred
University, College of Ceramics, New York. She has also studied at Penn
State University, State College, PA; The Corcoran School of Art, Washington,
DC; and Athens University, Athens, Greece.

Carol is best known for her quixotic sculptures. Hand built with coils, her
often surreal sculptures are satirical and narrative. Abstracting from
mythology, literature and life's observations, Carol's work is an embodiment
of the complex nuances within nature and humankind. Her subject matter
ranges anywhere from conceptual ideas to political commentaries. Materials
are commercially bought and she works with a computerized kiln so that she
can go home at a decent hour. She also exhibits her work in renowned
galleries and is published in several books and periodicals.

She and her husband Fred Johnson, also a potter, have their studio in
Seagrove, NC.
