Gerta Moray writes that, beginning in 1924, “In her search for ways to eke out a living, Carr turned to craft production, taking up rug making and pottery as media through which her interest in native imagery could find a market.”
Carr signed her pottery “Klee Wyck,” which meant "Laughing One," a nickname bestowed upon her by the First Nations people of Ucluelet.
