Carole Smith is a ceramic artist who has an interest in making plates with unusual, seemingly commemorative imagery. She collects thrift-store plates and then applies her own images under resin. With this technique, she combines her love of photography by using the images digitally in the form of ceramic transfers onto clay. During her residency, she hopes to develop these ideas further, using new designs based on her fascination with words and fonts. She also enjoys doing functional work in the form of plates and tiles.
