Carol Wainwright


Carol Wainwright is a painter, potter and textile artist based in Yorkshire, England.


Her highly individual practice explores the sensuous relationships between form, colour, texture and pattern; often using unexpected combinations of glazes and oxides to create unique and highly durable objects for daily use in the home.


When it comes to painting, as with textiles, it’s the layering of materials which Carol is drawn to, her choice of paper and the qualities it possesses act as a starting point from which she builds upon through the use of paint and collage. 


Carol’s practice is process based, with each application of colour or form demanding the next stage, a keen eye for colour, she creates a richness to the surface texture through various brush techniques.
