About Clay Rice:
Clay Rice is described by author Pat Conroy as a “great talent who combines soul and passion.” Silhouette artistry and storytelling have been in his family for more than 80 years. His grandfather, Carew Rice, was described by Poet Carl Sandburg as “America’s Greatest Silhouettist” and traveled worldwide, sharing his mesmerizing cutouts with delighted customers. Each profile silhouette takes Clay about 1 minute and he estimates that in his 40-year career, he has cut over 900,000 silhouettes. Clay has written and illustrated 6 award-winning children’s books.
Silhouette cutting is a Rice family tradition spanning 3 generations and 2 artists.
