Winter Wonders Artisan Profile - The untrained eye aka Carole Epp

Hello folks, it's me Carole posting today awkwardly about myself! I'm a stay at home mom of one, very very soon to be two and a full time (as full time as you can with kids) artist.

A few years back when I was pregnant with my first, my husband bought me a sewing machine and I almost instantly got addicted. I had been making ceramics for years, having studied clay in school, but the joy of working with so many fabrics with vibrant colors was so inspiring. I try to work with unique blends of fabrics that are more timeless than typical baby quilts. I aim to make pieces that are one of a kind, contemporary and fun.

Of course I still work in clay, but even that production has changed a bit as a result of my son. I found that cute imagery and storybook inspired themes started infiltrate my pots and a line of kid friendly tableware was born. So if you're looking for unique gifts for kids or adults that are young at heart please stop by and say hi on Friday or Saturday at the sale.

Beyond the quilts and pottery, I'll have a bit of handmade jewelery, silkscreen onesies, and some fun kid sized pillows (again not necessarily just for kids!)

You can also find me online at the untrained eye on etsy.

  1. Hi there, I came to your blog via a post on Facebook! It has been very exciting to scroll back and read the posts concerning the upcoming craft sale. I am sorry that I won't be able to attend. I bought a bowl made by you last year, I think, at the potter's guild sale. It has a bird on it and I like it quite a lot! It is a funny coincidence that I used to be a potter in Saskatoon, and more recently have done more with quilting, as I have ad quilt shop there called periwinkle. It would be great to run into you someday! Michelle Harris
