Timeline

The visual arts and informal writing have been life companions for Carol Alleman. Upon relocating to Tucson, Arizona in 1994, she discovered clay while exploring the mysterious desert landscape. Immediately she began digging her own clay and experimenting with slab, coil, and a variety of hand building techniques. Since then she has continued to explore the infinite dimensions of clay, considering herself largely “self-taught.”
In late 2001, Carol expanded her work into the bronze market choosing her vessel forms as her entry work. Today she continues to develop the bronze cast “Tree of Life” series of organic vessels. The series reflects a visual and narrative imagery of her personal intimacy with the powerful energy, spirit, and symbolism of trees and nature. Companion writings accompany her work.
Born in Lancaster, PA she obtained her degree in Art Education from the Pennsylvania State University (PA/USA); and continued graduate studies at the Lancaster Theological Seminary (PA/USA). Most recently she has completed studies with various contemporary artists at the Scottsdale Artist School, Scottsdale, Arizona. She is a member of the National Sculpture Society, and American Women Artists.
