Carolyn Genders studied at Brighton Polytechnic. She set up her studio in Sussex in 1980 and was awarded a post-graduate diploma in ceramics by Goldsmiths College in 1986. She takes a painterly approach to the creation of her vessels, often using vitreous slips rather than full glazes. The main inspirations for her recent work have been the landscape and mid-century British painters. She has been actively involved in teaching.
