Joan Carl has spent a life enjoying what she loves most: sculpting with hands, seeing with eyes, feeling the crevasses of hard wood, shaping materials until they speak as she says.
In her joyous reflections of youth, she shares the secret that ignites her heart: family and community are at the core. Other concerns — war and hate, space and refuge, the frustration of observing and not controlling — are present too but are under-girded by the hope of community, of banding together, of love.
For this video interview we walk through the sculptor’s studio and home, learning some secrets, some techniques, and some uncommon knowledge at work. Still actively receiving commissions, Joan’s passion has not dimmed; she relishes a challenge, the project at hand.
