Internationally known potter and sculptor Carlos Dowling

Works of Clay

Carlos Dowling knew from a very young age that his hands were made to work with clay. In his early teens he apprenticed under the late Canadian sculptor, Bylee Lang. The impact of this early training is evident in his work to this day.

Carlos Dowling’s Sarah “Sally” Bassett, an enslaved woman executed by the Bermuda government in 1730.

While clients in Virginia know him for his clay pottery, people around the world know him for his sculptures. Dowling considers himself a sculptor first. He was commissioned to create the ASPCA crest at the national headquarters in New York City. The Government of Bermuda commissioned him to create a 12 foot, 1200 ton bronze sculpture. Those are just two notable pieces of work.

A Splash of Color

You can see Dowling’s work on the set of Sisterhood of the Second Act. The art on the walls of the set and the books on the shelves are original works by women artists, with the exception of the pottery. Dowling lent us his work and as you will see it adds a splash of color. All the art and the pottery are for sale. You can learn more about the other artists, Leah Coffman and Susan McLaren by clicking their names.

Our programming is regionally sourced with universal appeal. Our live streamed music show, Roots2Rock draws viewers fromall over the world. R2R invites viewers into our unique venues and inside our music culture.

New Moon Network health and wellness programs offer fact-based information to help individuals build healthy lives–mentally, physically, personally, and professionally.

Our “Hyper-Local”public affairs programming is a genre that is becoming a rarity. That is because national corporations are buying local stations and print media.

We seek to fill this void offering content with local faces and landmarks.
