Carla Potter was raised in Ketchikan in Southeast Alaska. While pursuing an education in dance she discovered the odds of achieving grace were greatly increased if she only had to focus on the coordination of her eyes and hands and cut out the interaction of extraneous body parts.

She achieved her BA in Studio Ceramics at Humboldt State University in Northern California as well as embarking on a career in motherhood. After finishing school she moved back to Ketchikan with her young family where she immediately began showing in group and invitational exhibitions as well as creating solo exhibits for statewide venues. A group of persistent teachers there coaxed her into the artist in schools program where she taught extensively for 10 years. Carla has also taught at University of Alaska, Southeast, in the Ketchikan summer ArtsCool program and conducted private classes for students of all ages.

She has received Jurors’ awards for her clay sculpture in statewide exhibits. Her work is in many private and public collections including the Tongass Historical Museum and the Anchorage Museum of History and Art. Carla and her family currently reside in Anchorage.
Since 1992 Carla has been a participant in the annual wearable art fashion show in Ketchikan creating wearable art, sets and providing organizational direction.
