CAROLE HETZEL Biography

Carole Hetzel has always been fascinated with the process of shape and the challenge of expressing texture. When she started adding metal to her hand-dyed woven reed baskets their simple forms and rich color took on a new dimension.

Hetzel received her BA degree from Trenton College (NJ). She studied basketry at John C. Campbell Folk School (NC) and metalsmithing at the Armory Art Center (FL). Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Design (GA), Atlanta Museum of Art and Design (GA) and Florida State University Museum of the Arts.

Carole divides her time between Florida and Western North Carolina.

CAROLE HETZEL Statement

“Baskets tell a story. To appreciate a basket is like interacting with a painting, a novel, music or any of the arts. Not only does a basket have a purpose and message, it also has a sense of history. I find the combination between what would appear to be unrelated matter symbolizes how everything in life is perfectly interconnected.”
