Red Weldon Sandlin started her career as a graphic designer, but discovered a love for clay during a short ceramics course she had taken for fun. She creates elaborate sculptures and teapots inspired by children's literature, and always incorporates the image of a book into each piece. Sandlin spends "endless time" in libraries researching imagery and patterns for her sculptures, from ancient Chinese textile design to books on exotic animal care.
