Carey Lowell was born in Huntington, New York. She traveled extensively as a child due to her father’s career as a petroleum geologist, living in Libya, Holland, Texas, France and Colorado. She attended the University of Colorado and New York University and modeled for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein among many others. She pursued an acting career, appearing in such films as “Sleepless in Seattle” “Leaving Las Vegas” and “Love Affair”. In 1989, she starred in the James Bond movie, Licence to Kill opposite Timothy Dalton, but is probably best known for her role on TV’s Law & Order as Jamie Ross.

Carey was introduced to clay in her Colorado high school and has been exploring it ever since. Her forms are mainly hand built in porcelain as well as wheel thrown and altered. Her work has been shown at the Celadon Gallery in Watermill, NY and Greenwich House in Manhattan.
